Description 

This is a product of the "Summer 2000 River Wall Fill In The Blanks Tour", and the most difficult line on the lower wall. From the ledge at the water's edge, head up through the forest and blocks for three bolts (shared with "Up A Creek"). Step left from the third clip, reach around the corner and hang a long sling on the fourth bolt. Unclip the third bolt, then pull a well vegetated 5.11+ crux past the bolt. Get established under the roof and clip short on the bolt in the roof. Clip a long sling on the bolt as well. Pull up on sloping pinches on the left and make a blind clip for a bolt just over the lip. Once you've got it, extend the clip in the roof. The crux is pulling over the lip (think 5.12a sloping crimp mantle). Rejoin "Up A Creek" for a slab hike to the anchors.

DON'T TOPROPE THIS ROUTE UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR ROPE CUT! There is a sharp edge extending about 15' left and right along the lip of the overhang. It has been rounded off, but any swinging across the edge on a rope under tension WILL CUT YOUR ROPE!


Protection 

10 bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. Three long slings to ease rope drag.
