Waterboarding starts just left of Interrogation. This technical, 90 foot route has three distinct cruxes (the roof band, the headwall, and the exit moves through the final hang / groove). Although the route has good rests, the climbing is surprisingly engaging. Climb blocky / broken rock to a high first clip (or stick clip); power through the roof / hang via small but positive holds; a technical section on the headwall yields the second crux; rest and then exit via the black overhung groove directly above.
It is between East Germany and Interrogation.
10 bolts; ring anchors.

The bolt line is poor at the beginning, to far to the right. The logical line trends up the left side. The rock is pretty bad quality for half the climb. The climb is worth doing but be careful of the rock at the beginning.
