ApproachFrom the picnic area, hike past the rock cabin southeast on a well-used trail. A hundred yard or so past the cabin, the trail climbs a rocky hill. Turn right at the top of the hill and head southwest. The trail will circle around toward the creek and enter the woods. After a hundred yards or so, the trail will leave the woods and cross the creek. After the crossing, climb a slight grade to the top of the ridge where you will be able to see Wizard Wall on the left and great views down the canyon. The trail drops down the right side and crosses the creek again. Follow the creek past Zoo wall which will be high and on your right. Lichen wall rises directly out of the creek water about 200 yards past Zoo wall. Ker Plunk begins over the water.
Another trail follows the top of the wall; however, this is used as an exit to some of the other routes.
Route DescriptionIt seems the route gets its name because you can fall into the water at the start. The beginning of the route has a bouldery start and the pro is thin until reaching the ramp. Use the crack in the ramp/dihedral until reaching the anchors/tree at the top. The second pitch is easy (more like 5.2). At the top of the pitch, traverse over to the anchors for a 120 ft. rappel over the water.
