The face climbing standard of the rating at E-Rock, this route has an unprotectable start at about 5.8 to the right end of a ledge. Go left on the ledge which has a thin horizontal crack above it. The only pro this crack will take are two (equalized) slider nuts or RPs of the smallest sizes. Then a few moves left off the ledge to reach the first bolt and the crux section follows. Work out the moves over the steep crystal face past 3-4 bolts. Diagonal up to the right on increasingly lower angle face moves, over to the two bolt anchor above another horizontal crack. Pitch two is on a much easier run out slab with sparse pro.
French Route is located left of the Edge of Night hourglass flake on the right end of The Shield.
Bring a few small to med pieces to protect the thin crack and the exit moves.
