|Yesterday, I saw an entire family skinny dipping in the pool at the base of the falls from this route. Good times.|

Looks like an old aid line. The bulk of this route is made up of what appears to be piton scars (pods) that can be used for bomber finger locks. Two distinct cruxes: one about 20 feet up, the other within 10 feet from the top and everything else is sustained 5.10 climbing with good rests disappearing after second half of climb. Most of the route appears to be vertical.
The top crux is amazing and requires a few one armed pull-ups off of one-finger locks in pods.
Bring small sized offset nuts and a few smaller sized hybrid aliens for pods. You'll thank yourself later.
This is not a give-me 5.10.

|The route takes good pro the entire way so long as you have a couple of your smallest pieces for the top. 5.10 climbers of all abilities should be able to have fun on this route!|

|Really nice short finger crack; long moves between juggy finger locks. Great fun. Eats stoppers.|
