Jay Conway sticks the crux on Flying Fish, Waimea.

Description 

Alternative finish to E-ticket/Whip Tide. Once you reach the giant roof at the top of the Whip Tide corner, head out and left on a triangular flake as for E-Ticket, but instead of dropping back into the wall and continuing left, from the tip of the flake gain two crimpers and do your best imitation of flying out to a huge jug and chains at the lip.

A Ward Smith project, first climbed by Dave Graham


Location 

The middle of Waimea, up off the E-Ticket ledge to the giant roof at the top.


Protection 

13 bolts. Many draws may be fixed, but take care to observe their condition before trusting them, especially for sharply worn biners
