On the north, backside of the 3rd tier of the Waltz formation above the Watercolor Wall. Start up easy slab ramp, take obvious left-facing red dihedral, traverse rt. past fixed pin and power through lower crux to good stance. Good holds to alcove at base of large bulging roof with a crack splitting the middle. Move left from underclings to finger-locks via powerful moves, finish on easy crack to chain anchors.

Descent Options:

Rappel from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars This is good

FA done 06/16/07. Protect bottom section well, had a 4.5 Camalot pull out of a "good" placement on first attempt due to glassy nature of rock at the lower crux. Hit beginning slab in fall. Placed a #7 Lost Arrow in thin seam just left of this placement. Sack-up and go for the upper crux, its protected well and the fall is into open space.
