Description 

This is a good traversing climb that follows the dikes from the start of Current Event up and left to the top of Storm Surge.

Climb Current Event to the fourth bolt, then continue traversing left on the dikes past two bolts to join Storm Surge. Climb the top part of Storm Surge past its final bolt to the anchors.

Protection 

7 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
