The crux of this climb starts down low. The opening 15 ft are pretty sustained moves over small crimps. Once you reach the 3rd bolt, the difficulty backs off quite a bit and affords some really enjoyable face climbing over positive holds. There's one last move trying to reach the shuts that will likely get your attention. Route may be a bit dirty if climbing after a rain. Definitely worth doing!
Locate Raging Waters. This route starts about 5 or 6 feet left of it and about 10 ft to the right of the start to Straight up and Stiff
7 bolts, shuts. If you don't like the idea of making the last moves with a bolt 4 ft below your feet, you can easily place a small cam (.33-.5") in a horizontal at your waist as you make the final move. Clean fall without it though.

just filthy after a rain.... took two laps before the silt was gone from the holds. and it was in each and every single one bottom to top. Fun movement after it was cleaned up.
