    A one-pitch sport route that feels like an alpine adventure route. This is a good time of year to climb this because it starts right out of the creek and the water level is very low now. There is a 5 ft waterfall a few feet away adding to the atmosphere. Still lots of lichen on the upper slab. If you are looking for something a little different than the average Boulder Canyon route, this is it. 3 stars for the adventure factor, although the climbing itself is only 2 stars.
