The first route in the entire area. Follows the obvious white streak in the middle of the left side of the wall. A little flakey here and there. Not hard, but a bit inobvious and a good warmup.
7 bolts and chains

Climbs the obvious water streak up the middle of the wall.
I bolted this route in November 2007. Then it got cold and snowy and we didn't redpoint it until late winter/early spring 08. The second half of the route generally climbs on the right side of the bolt line. Consistently good, fun climbing. No one part is "wow," but the whole thing is enjoyable.
We named it this because the water streak kinda looks like the Milky Way.

This route is super sick. Love it. Definitely a classic. Great route to hop on first thing.

Loved this climb. I gave it 4 stars as it keeps going and going all the way to the very end.

This route is a must do if you are climbing in the 10a-10b range, and I know you jack-wagons are out there ( because I am card carrying member ). It's not a particularly demanding route in any one aspect, but provides a harmonious blend of solid holds, moves, and exposure. Be careful which features you use, as some of them are unnecessary and will readily break. When in doubt, look to the right.
