BETA PHOTO: Simply the overall beta photo with Left Crack high...


This route follows the left crack on the front of the rock. The start is right over water, so you'll have to lower down to the very bottom unless you want to wade the stream (which may or may not be legal). The route is very sustained throughout (I was getting surprisingly pumped) and there are a bunch of fun crack and face moves to keep you entertained the whole time, plus a fun little mantle in the middle to mix things up.


This route uses the Tidal Wave anchors and is located just to the left of Tidal Wave (see topo)


Two bolts at the top for anchors (bring long slings and webbing to set up). There are a couple rusted 1/4 inch bolts on the route that should not be trusted. If they were replaced this might be able to be lead
