"...The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters."
Delicate slab climbing on really nice rock which is punctuated by two small overhangs.
Located just downstream from the main wall and immediately right of R.O.I.
5 bolts (a mixture of 1/2" Rawls and Fixe Triplex bolts). Less bold leaders may wish to stick clip the first bolt--although it is a pretty soft landing if you blow it.
2 bolt top anchor with rappel rings. It is entirely possible to pull your rope without getting it wet--be creative ;)

This is a good route for the beginning lead sport climber (or aspiring soloist).
