Description 

Look for the "bear claw" pockets near the start of the route.Climb up and left through the crux to a good rest. Then climb right aiming for the vertical "flues" that make for interesting stemming. rach another good rest then head back left and climb to the top. The physical crux is in the first 15ft... the mental much higher.
You can escape on a ledge to the right 3/4 of the way up the route.

The descent is a down climb off the back side or you could always jump! It would be a hell of a jump though!


Location 

Mid way up canyon on the right hand(going upstream) wall.


Protection 

This is a deep water solo.
