This is the obvious 3 step like formation on the upper waterfront.(approach via a Duck route or chickenhead holiday) It has the pitch that curves like a wave in the middle. The pitches are all steep and very fun.The first pitch is the free crux 12D or C1+. The second pitch is C1 or 5.10 (my personal fav pitch on the route). ANd the last pitch is 5.11 slab off scary old bolts or A2 off scary hooks and mandatory moves out of the steps. Great route with good steep climbing. Bailing is diffiucult at best after the first pitch as there are no fixed anchors, until the top.
