Description:

One of the best routes in Oklahoma. Three interesting and cool pitches. First pitch (90 feet)- Start at the base of the obvious crack to the right of the slab. Climb this until it almost pinches out, then step right and over to a belay at a decomposing ledge with two bolts and a chain. Second pitch (70 feet) - climb up the crack into a corner then traverse left under the overhang to the belay at two bolts on the slab below Buns Up. Third pitch (90 feet) go up into the corner and then traverse left under the overhang again to a bolt at the corner, then around and up an easy corner. Build your own belay anywhere once you reach easy ground. Walk off to the left and down the gully for the descent.

4 out of 5 stars Nice Climb

Fun way to learn trad and multi-pitch. Bolted anchors. One tough move about half-way up and home free.

5 out of 5 stars I had Great Expectations for this route.

It didn't disappoint. Although it looks longer than it actually is. Had a little trouble spotting the bolt anchors from the crack. But once I got over to them I had no problems finding them. Dan led pitch two and we rapped down from the Water Streak anchors. If you do this decent, make sure you have at least a 60m rope.
