Description 


This route has a long history, Back in 1993 Eric Muedt and John Govi hand drilled the one bolt on the route. Many years later a rumor surfaced that this climb was called White Lie and rated 5.11+. A couple of years ago I was curious about the line so I got on it. Much to my surprise the route was way harder and had no anchors. Luckily we had hardware that day and a project was born. After a few seasons and several partners the route was sent at the end of February 2013. Definitely one of the hardest pitches at The Waterfall and super quality.

Location 

Start on the Chronic, traverse right at 25' past a lone bolt, and climb second dihedral on the right.

Nice Dave... Thought that thing had to be 13 based on the effort you were putting into it while floating up everything else in the area. Can't wait to check it out some day.
