BETA PHOTO: Go up the very right side of the rock. All shaded...


Pull a cool mantle move to the slab on the left of thepicture.Using the Watercourse wall on the right is definatelycheating.The top section of this slab can be a little unnerving, asthe slab as a whole is quite greasy.


A pad is nice, since a little usually finds you onyour ass.

Polished as all hell. Fun though, I think Supertopo calls it V1, definitely seems more V3'ish to me though. Slab at top was more polished, easy but kinda sketchy... better to jump off once you finish the meat and potatoes.

On the contrary, don't jump off after you get over the mantle. Go all the way through the birth canal for the full experience.

This climb is called Embryonic Journey (V3). There is an extension, Embryonic Journey Sit (V4), that starts to the left.
