Yet another fun hand and finger crack...

On the Shakespeare Cliff start up the left side of the cliff on top of a large flat block.

Follow a great jam crack in a shallow left facing corner to a tricky crux.

Gain a ledge and then power through a final bulge on jugs to an anchor.

Best to belay from above and rap off.


left side of Shakespeare cliff.

Classic. Crux is not pulling the roof, but is actually jamming in the columns. A 60m gets you to the ground just fine.

One of the best lines on the east side. Fun

We added a new 2-bolt anchor January 2015 with nice fat rings up just above the roof on climber's left. Now the route no longer shares an anchor with Much Ado About Nothing, but instead has its own anchor (shared with Sauron/Yost In Space). This anchor is much better position for rope-drag/running over the sharp edge (a couple shoulder-length slings are perfect), and the fact that there are two anchors reduces cluster up on the ledge up there.

It is super easy to walk over 15' on the ledge to the existing anchor above Much Ado.

Thanks, Matt. That sounds like a nice improvement. I'll have to get down and check it out; have not been on these classics in a decade.
