|The Dark Side
This line is a technical exercise in thin pocket pulling - very worthwhile.Requires some pretty precise footwork.
To find it, go to the Question of Balance Pinnacle and go left. You will pass Enchanted Porkfist (11a), and then 3 more routes before you reach the buttress with "Eat, Drink...."
On this buttress, around the right side of the arete, you will see "Kashmere" (improbably rated as a height-dependent 12c/13b). Just left of this is a 12a up a crack. The next route to the left is "Eat, Drink...", which has some funky old hangers on it.
Great for a hot day at Shelf!

This is a beautiful route on wonderful limestone. The crux goes up the middle section on top quality, small pockets. Do this route!

The hangers probably need to be replaced on this route as there are significant rust stains running out underneath the bolts now.
