An attractive, curving line up the left side of the Big Boulder. Splash up the lower slab to a small ledge. Strap on your life-jacket here, and tackle a commiting undercling. Take a deep breath and swim up the left side, with your hands on the rounded edge, and your feet on slippery slopers. Back in shallow water, traverse right and float the upper slabs to the chains above V-20. 9+/10a.

Descent Options:

Rap from the chains above V-20, or scramble down the left side of the Big Boulder.

2 out of 5 stars top bolts??

This route is a nice addition to the wall, but WTF is up with the last two bolts??! Not only do they send the climber into no mans land, not only do they cause additional rope drag, but they put the seconder, or toproper in a VERY precarious position were the potential for a wicked pendulum fall is apparent.
