Description 

A fairly decent route that takes good pro at the crux, which is a crack in a corner about halfway up. If the good climbing were more continuous this would be a 3 star. One important note: the bolted anchors are not visible from the ground or anywhere on the route until you reach them. The key is to trend left above the little tree on the slab and go around a bulge to a ledge with the anchors. This is slightly run out, hence the PG-13 rating.


Location 

Last route on Black Wave Wall to the south. Look for small corners facing right and a small tree 3/4 the way up. The anchors are directly under the point where the cliff steps down.


Protection 

Standard rack and slings. Watch that gear under the crux, this route is very concave, and a fall at the crux will put a lot of outward force on the gear.
