Description:

Start by pulling small roof, to small face holds and just enough jugs on very smooth wavey wall, to crack in big roof. Going left past little roof makes a difference. Trail traffic will be through ropes and belay.

4 out of 5 stars nm

Probably ended up doing one of the variants as the recovering hand wouldn't let me pull a couple of the holds

3 out of 5 stars I thought this was harder than the wave

delicate but not strenuous through the first half and then it gets harder, slopey and steeper

4 out of 5 stars Good route!

Did this on TR. This was a lot of fun! Balancy with small crimps, flat ledge hand holds and clever technical climbing. It got a little harder today though, as when I was standing up onto one of the heavily chalked bomber hand holds below the crux a little chunk broke off (the hold is still usable though). Looks like a few variations are possible, so I'm definitely going to go back and try the route again, and maybe the redpoint, although it was pretty pumpy. More so if you hesitate before the crux (stupid me!).
The roof section at the end is an added bonus; not super hard or strenuous and loaded with great holds. Just be aware you're moving up and over the anchor at that point if you're on TR.

If you do set up the route for TR it might be worthwhile to put in a few small pieces of gear in the horizontal cracks to keep folks from swinging way the heck out into space if they lose it on the crux. We had an interesting moment getting someone back on at that point... swinging in to latch onto either flat shelves or tiny crimps isn't easy.

Someone put up some anchor bolts the day I was out, but no rings. I rapped off the big tree but beware the rope eating crack.

3 out of 5 stars Can you hear the sustain?

Technical, balancy, and pumpy with a short section with poor holds. Good gear though.
