3 out of 5 stars Grey Waves

Finally got on the route after climbing every other sport route on the wall. Just follow the bolts up, it kinda mellows out after the first 2 pitches. We did it in 4 pitches by combining pitches 3&4.

4 out of 5 stars Good starter multi-pitch

Don't get it confused with KHW, because they cross (KHW is a trad climb). If you see a big X on a rock on the second pitch, it's loose, and you are on the right track. At this point, if you see bolts on the left below you, that's "KHW". If you see a bolt to the right on a little overhang, that is Grey Waves. First pitch (bolts have been doubled) is the best (if you are referring to the old topo), that is if you ignore the new belay station 25m up.

A lot of run outs on the upper pitches.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb

Great climb for people transitioning to multi-pitch climbing. Run-out at certain sections.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Don't trust the topo! You need about 12-14 draws to make it to the first belay, the topo only says 7!
I got hosed the first time I tried it and had to back off! Only brought about 10 draws.

4 out of 5 stars Clean.

I liked getting the toughest pitch over with first. A bit of route finding, but good rock to take you to a fun slabby final section.

3 out of 5 stars Grey Waves

Nothing special, if you do take gear very small rack, you dont need anything bigger than the green or red camalot (.75/1).

3 out of 5 stars Like the guidebook says... a fine route

A bit sparsely bolted on the first pitch, but didn't really feel like I needed any gear. Be very careful if people are climbing above or below...lots of loose rock.
