The only bolted line on the Shakespeare Cliff. A fun start pulling over the roof gets harder as you climb up. The route starts working the left side of the arete but works both sides as the column narrows at the top. The crux comes at the 2nd to last bolt where blank arete slapping and lousy feet lead to a desperate clipping hold. Looking for others input so we can get this route information more accurate


I believe this is the only bolted route on the Shakespeare Cliff. Chalk on both sides of the arete make this climb look hard.


Bolts the whole way up. Shares anchors with Much to Do about Nothing.

FYI - its called Measure For Madness. The Watts guide gives it .11d, which I think is accurate as long as your arms are long enough to span between both aretes of the column.
