Me getting in to the business on Mud Shark.

Description 

Pretty fun steep slab climbing. Begin as for Dream On and Leviathan in the center of the wall. Climb the three bolt 5.10a to the 2 bolt anchor. Mud Shark takes the rightmost of the three bolted lines above the anchor.

Climb the weird seam to a crux traverse sequence below a bulge...funky and slippery. 4 or 5 bolts past the anchor...8 or 9 total.

Protection 

8 or 9 QDS and 2 bolt anchor.

Awesome pitch from the river to the top anchors. Tough, slippery crux requires technical feet. Well worth doing.

Good route with tricky flared jamming. Thankfully the footwork is on surprisingly grippy rock. The contrived finish left a bit to be desired though.
