Start up some hollow flakes making your way up to a small roof. Negotiate the roof with good stems and finger locks. Get established in the final stem box with twin tips cracks.


Past Vertebrae, just to the left of Earth Diver. Look for the white stem box up high.


#1 Met. up to .75. Triple .4
Two bolt anchor

A pretty nice warm up when it's cold out. The stem box catches a lot of sun in the morning. Not very sustained, but fun movement in the box up high.

It only took 22 years but this is now equipped with a modern 2 bolt anchor (including fixed biners, so as with all climbs at the waterfall please leave them in place).

Thanks Kevin. I think Ed Abbey would be proud of how long it took to get that done....
