Description 

This is a great route that isn't over till it's over! The crux is just off the ground and looks to be a "Partners in Crime" clone (Shelf Road) with a big pull-reach out of the hueco at the second bolt but climbs totally differently. The fun, bulging section above goes at easy 10 with jugs to a final shake just below another small roof, (milk the shake for all it's worth!!). A long, devious secondary crux sequence climbs over the roof, leads left, then back right to the anchors.


Protection 

9 clips and a 2 bolt anchor.

Ken & I established this route in Spring 1994. I recently returned and climbed again, almost two decades later. What a great line and very well protected. There are 9 bolts / 2 bolt anchor. Stick clipping the 1st bolt is advised.
