From tree at base of right side of steep headwall, climb up past three bolts and TCU placements to short but steep overlap. Crank through this to belay. P2- Climb straight up until you can traverse left slightly to hook into Walking On Water near the last bolt. Belay at tree. Rap off tree. Two ropes needed to get down.


behind tree just right of Walking On Water.


Sparsely bolted. Take a small rack, mostly TCU's.

This route is designed to be the easiest way up the to the top..... That being said, it's still heady in spots and will test your nerve. Really nice position, great face/slab climbing on incredible rock... So quiet and alone on a HUGE, beautiful wall..... This route was a great experience.

Note: You do not need a rack. I placed one cam, that's it. (There's no protection other than the bolts, which are pretty sparse. Just kinda forget pro, that's your best bet really.) As for the beginning of the climb, lol, let's just say the first bolt is really high, you better have your courage suit on. The start is not unreasonable for the grade, but still, it's a no-fall spot for sure. I had to really talk myself into getting on this. Watch yo' ass and feel the heart thump!!!!
