Apparently this route has gotten easier with time, as a current guidebook lists it as 5.7. I'll stick with the original guidebook(s) grade of 5.9.
Fun, easy face climbing leads to a large roof which is pulled on titanic jugs. Easier climbing leads to the top. Great moves over the roof!
There is a variation that starts just left of this route and is exponentially harder. I've only done it once, and pulled on a draw to get over the roof.


Just left of Jam or Slam. Look for the large roof (and, usually, a large group of folks at the base).


Bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

Good but the moves can be greasy!

Well protected roof. Fun but short.

Slabby start, awesome "titanic jug" roof pull, more slabbiness, steeper section to the top. I honestly love this route...its my favorite warmup/moderate at The Shield.
