Description 

This route has steeper face climbing on the right side of The Shield. Its difficulty seems to be dependent on the path taken through the crux, following the bolts directly is harder. It is a nice route with a rest at the midway anchors before the crux, it's 11- to there.

Location 

The route shares start with Blood of a Dead Hero, then branches out right and up the steepest, cleanest part of the face.

Protection 

Bolts.

This route is called MPO (Mo's Pissed Off). The story is I was bolting it solo and stayed out way too late and my wife, Mo, was on the phone to SAR when I walked in the door.
Done as one pitch this is long hard route. The bottom half to the midway anchor is 11-. After mid-way, the climbing is straightforward until you reach a bulge and the bolts veer right. If you go off line to the up-left it is easy 10, but if you go right out over the bulge it involves a series (about 5) physical and precise moves.
I thought the crux was harder than many 12a's that I have climbed, but I would go with the 11+.
