Follow the arching corner and steep face to bolted anchors.


Starts at the far right side of the White Wall (the first climbing area after passing the falls).

12a if u iron cross to the left after the arching crack.

11b if u climb the obvious line. then face a heinous/scary traverse to get to the chains.

The white wall is not the first area you come to after passing the falls. There are 2 places with 2 short routes each before getting to the white wall.

Bottom Feeder is a contrived, forced line. The 12a is, as Ryan said, the IC move that's not even that hard. The obvious line up the crack can take you a long way right, way right of the bolt line. Best beta? Do another route!
