A fun bit of smooth friction climbing that might seem harder the farther you get from that low bolt though the crux is on the lower part... Keep your head together and make it home in one piece...

From the anchor at the base of the Ninth Wave clip the first bolt on that route and step left 10 feet... Head up the shallow groove following it right, left and finally right again to the finishing anchor of Ninth Wave a bit to the right...


From the same start anchor as Ninth Wave... Go left from the anchor 10 feet and look up for a shallow groove...

Easy to top rope from the anchors (though you may take a little swing it would sure beat the whipper you would get leading it)


1 bolt to anchor
