Description 

A remarkable route that, at the top feels like you have done four separate pitches!

Starts to the right of A Wonderful Life on parallel, vertical seams with a distinct mini arete in between them. Expect bouldery moves right off the deck followed by more hard face climbing until the angle backs off a bit. Work up and slightly right past layback moves and bolts to a tricky little move at the lip. Bolts, and a #.75.

Move up the thin crack in front of you with jugs on the right. This crack quickly turns to hands and leads you to a small roof. Figure out a way to move right around the roof passing a bolt, and some wild moves. Get your right foot in the low pocket! Move swiftly passing large slick holds.

At the next break, take a few breaths, and stick to the finger crack, using the larger holds on the right for your feet! BIG stemming if you can span it. Enjoy the near perfect finger pods and stemming up the last bit of steep, hard climbing. Turning the top bulge is the last crux of several.

This pitch can now be linked with Aquarius Rising. Still 5.11+ though the AR finish is easier than the standard Resurrection finish.

Location 

At the far right side of the Right Wall, look for conspicuous vertical start with bolts.

Protection 

The route begins with bolts, and .5 camalot. Small-medium TCUs, a couple of hand sized pieces, medium wires. Long draws and runners are very helpful.

Nice work JJ, must admit that this was more challenging than I had guessed from the ground, hope to get back up there and send soon. Oh yeah, slings and nuts would have been nice to have!

Wow! My favorite pitch at The Waterfall thus far. Vision quest for me for sure, and I agree, felt as though I'd climbed three or four pitches by the anchor. I didn't use anything larger than a red #1 Camalot.
