Follow the large flake straight up to the shallow roof with horizontal crack, follow this roof traversing right until coming upon the first bolt/2nd Opt. belay. Pull over the roof (5.6 Crux) then follow the line of bolts up slab to the next belay. Then follow the line of bolts again up the slab, past 3rd Opt. belay, to another shallow and long horizontal roof with a large ledge beneath it. Mantle the "roof" and continue past a Piton and two bolts, the rap chains/belay will be on the left.
In the middle of the Right Section of Waves of Rock, the right side of large gully with single Pine tree in it, cannot miss the large flake the route follows. The base of the route is mostly a boulder pile.
3 Button-head bolts with (small/rusty)chains will get you first Rap down to the gully with the tree, scramble down Gully to reach the tree then have a second rap down off of the tree.
Standard rack, flake will take anything you throw at it. Runners (For first few pieces.). ~10 Draws.
Pitch 1: Gear and good bolts(x5) Pitch 2: Bolts and a Piton (x8)
First bolt on second pitch lacks a hanger.
Also, a 70M is nice to have for this route. For the up and down.
Looking up at second pitch.

Great route! Fun, exposed slab that isn't affected by the Peregrine Falcon closures. Enjoy!

Note to self: 50 Meter rope barely cuts the rap down!! Had to rap to the Bonsai on the middle of the slab before rapping to the tree in the main gully! A little more than a handful of rope was left outside of my belay device when I reached the Bonsai!!
