More of Parley's climbing, this time power packed in a short four bolter. Get a spotter for the initial moves as they are thin to the 1st bolt. Then, after clipping, get down to the business. This route caused my partner and I much bewilderment, before we finally puzzled out the sequence.
The right-most line on Riptide Wall.
4 bolts and chains up top.

What's not to like about this one? Typical thin Parley's climbing with long reaches to bad edges and feet smeared in shallow pods. Add a tricky and more balancy sequence that you usually run into on this wall and you got yourself a 2.5 stars crushfest. Would be 2.8 if it wasn't so short and a bit sandy.
Don't dismiss this route cause it doesn't look as good as its longer neighbors, it packs as least as much tough climbing as astro.
