This is a very fun route with mostly solid rock. D'Antonio's guide book calls it Musso Route. If someone besides John got the first ascent, please let me know.

This is a fantastic and aesthetic line! I don't think there's a move on it harder than .10b/c but the face is very sustained .10a/b climbing, after blowing your arms on the bouldery start. Well protected, a must-do at Shelf!

Like Bill said, no showstopper crux but plenty of 10ish moves. One of my Shelf favorites.

This is a really good route with good bolt placements. The rock down low isn't great, but the bolts are right where you want them. I avoided pulling on the big flake (4th bolt or so) by going left, which had good climbing. Super fun route and a good find by the FA party.

As mentioned above, no move above 10c/d. Just stacked. Definite top favorite 11a at Shelf
