Description 

This route was put up recently by Eric Wright with stainless steel bolts and hangers, so it'll be the shiny ones whereas the older routes will be rusty (from being in line with the waterfall). The first half is slick while the upper section is fun edges and friction. Note: the stainless steel bolts and 3-bolt anchor are a welcome addition to this area but of course more expensive. Help him out if you meet him out there!

Location 

This is located in the Alcove area of the Ouray Pool area. This is now the 2nd route from the left, just left of (about 3 feet) Groove is in the Heart and just right of the 11. In fact, the lower section can be climbed by clipping bolts on the 11 as well.

Protection 

9 bolts to a 3-bolt anchor. Anchor is not visible from the ground, but is approximately the same level (a little lower) than Groove Tube and just on the left side of the waterfall notch.
