Description 

Approximately midway across the wall, climb up a short dihedral to a bulge, then out right and up. Come back left near the anchors.
This was the first route on the wall. It orginally went to a ledge above where the anchor is, but we were on 50 meter ropes back then and everyone hated having to drag a rope up to rap off. So we lowered it (no change in grade or quality).
The entire wall was then called "Lord of the Rings Wall", cus we were reading the books, but King named it Lowtide in his first guidebook and the name stuck.
