Slippery When Wet

Directions:  The climb starts up between Under Toe and Shifty Eyes. There is a flat face right where you start and you can see a line of pockets starting about 16' up.
Description: Water almost always seeps out of the last pocket and down into the next to the last one, hence the name. Thus, this is a climb to be done later in the summer after a dry spell, unless you just like wet climbing. Regardless, it's a pretty cool fully trad line.
    Pitch 1: Make a boulder move up an improbable blank face to a stance. Plug gear into the first pocket, and continue up past several more. At the last pocket move up and slightly right to a ledge then step back left into the bushes to the Under Toe anchor. 50'

Gear: standard rack #3 Camelot to green Alien, larger Tri Cams are useful
Descent: rappel from 2-bolt anchor on Under Toe
History:  August 30,2012 - George Hurley and Al Hospers
