Description 

This route is just to the left of Drizzle and is recognized by a double undercling start leading to a black slab. Stick-clip the first bolt, grab the underclings and try to stand up and throw to a big sloping pocket. After the crux move, the feet get bad while you are forced to pop around on decent little pockets. Once you get established on the slab, don't let your guard down, it's tricky. The original anchors were smashed by a falling rock in the spring of 2002 and are left there partially as a testament to the forces of nature and partially because they're mangled and can't be removed. The anchor for now is a fixed biner at what used to be the last bolt. It's actually a better stopping point and the anchor will be placed there soon.


Protection 

6 bolts, fixed biner anchor

This climb would be really good if it saw more people on it. When I did it a few months ago there was mud it all of the holds on the vertical section.

Unfortunately this route and the one to the right get all of the runoff after storms or after the winter season. At the beginning of the season, the first person up just needs to brush it and it usually stays pretty clean for the season (or until a big storm).
