Nice panorama of worth the wade and me leading it.


A shadowy corner which, when water is flowing in the creek, has a small pool at its base. However, it will take a significant rain before one has to wade to the start of this route. Stepping stones come in from the left and the right to reach the nice but small dry rock shelf. The corner is full of good holds (especially on the wall on the right-side of the corner), ample protection and a fair share of suspect looking blocks which must be navigated around.


About the mid-point of the crag is a deep slot which is almost cave like. Wade for me is around the corner to the left from this central cave.


Two bolts on the right-hand face get you started, then .5 t 3" gear can protect the rest of the climb. A line of bolts diverges to the left-hand face which is another route (Wade for me - 5.8). At the top of the buttress, step left to the chain anchors at the top of Wade For Me.
