One of Shelf's best. The moves getting established on the face are pretty desperate.

Great rests bolt to bolt. A long wingspan helps in upper pocket section.

Try going left after the bush instead of right.

Excellent route! Great rest?? Pretty desperate middle crux on a very thin crimp leads to wonderful, yet sustained, climbing up top.

If you can pull the move on this "11d", the crux of ejection seat will feel like a piece of cake.

First ascent was in 1990. Not sure where the sandbag, published grade originates, but it's a good bit harder than 11d.

Hardware upgraded 4-25-15. Four new 1/2" stainless lead bolts plus anchors (shared with Motif). Thanks to ASCA for the hardware!

The crux over the bulge feels like V4-BV5, depending on your reach and footwork. Fierce line with beautiful throws to pockets following the crux. Harder than any other 5.11 I've done. The only 5.11 I have not on-sighted at Shelf as well. I thought Gym Arete was easier. Forget the numbers, and have fun trying hard on this classic!
