Shovel Point - "A Study in Scarlet"


Enjoy this one if you aren't up to the task of eating the Sacred Biscuit. It hits similar terrain with a similar style of climbing, but without the awesome crux of the Biscuit.
You could probably eye the Biscuit if you set up a rope on this line.


Climber's right (east) of The Sacred Biscuit, this line starts in the same place, and heads right.

Fun technical footwork on steep slabs at the bottom, to some fun power moves at mid-height.
