This route starts about 80 feet to the right of Ezra (5.9+) on a slightly overhanging face right over the water. The crux is the first 15 feet: think bouldery, think slick, polished feet.
(*) High water would make the start very tricky, if not impossible.
Bring four quickdraws and there are two cold shut anchors at the top.

Mike, that's not true (maybe on this site). I bolted it and climbed it on the same day. Great rock, actually, but a bit short, hard to start, and often underwater. The crux is the very first move, as I recall. I had to dry a foot that is perpetually wet before each try. If you pull through the first move it's 5.11 A0.

Great little route...Im glad Mr. Edwards is able to chime in from the SLC :]
Super good rock, cool bouldery start, and well placed bolts make this a perfect first 12 for someone.

Ditto. This was my first 5.12. And yes, per Mr. Edward's comments, I had to dry a certain critical foothold. Think: bouldering with a rope.
