Horizontal and vertical cracks. Water coming out of the rock at the start. Off balance moves throughout the climb.


From the lake look at the cliff look for a black streak. Head towards that as you get closer you will see the bolts. There is a spring right at this climb to your left.


3 bolts and a standard rack will get you to the anchors up top. .75 BD cams and #3 too. Flexible cams were most useful since you are placing in horizontal cracks.

Can climb this using just the bolts, it's a little run out, but good, positive holds all the way up.
