Description:

This classic route is 5 pitches long and sees a lot of traffic. 4 of the 5 pitches are WI2. After topping out, walk off down canyon until hitting a well travelled gully lovingly dubbed "the luge." Sit down and have a great ride to the bottom. Probably the best part of the whole route. Due to a rock slide sometime between last season (06/07) and this the rabbit hole is gone and the old first pitch anchors with it. New anchors have been placed on the left side of the falls up on the wall. A new rap decent from pitch 2 starts on the East side of the big platform and goes down the steep V-gully back towards the climb look for rap anchors on the South side of the V before you descend back into the waterfall area.

5 out of 5 stars Great route, incredible view.

2nd pitch was about 1/2 inch thick towards the top. Could see water running under it.
