Starts left of Dustbowl Blues. Climb a crack system to the long roof, then work left to a vertical crack in the roof that goes through a black water streak. Pull the roof and continue up the crack to the top. Direct start: climb directly under the water streak through a section of 5.7 slab climbing with no protection until you get near the roof.

5 out of 5 stars Strenuous but fun

This is a super climb! The roof section is very strenuous but the holds are positive. Hats off to Michael K. for a gutsy lead; it'll be a while before I'm up to leading one this tough. I think the direct start on this route would be a scary lead; the climbing is easy but you're basically run out for the first 40-50 feet!
