Another brilliant Shelf Route, this time it is on the right side of Menses Prow. Find the inner route on the left (East-facing) wall of an inside corner. Look for a few shakeouts along the way. Start with big holds and stemming from the corner up left to the first bolt. Move past the overlap to the fun sequential, pumpy moves that don't stop until you reach the anchor.


10 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

The second half is sustained, I would rate it 5.11b/c.
In my opinion, this is a must do at Menses Prow.
This routes features nice stemming moves for the first half, then when half way up, moving left onto the face, there are some awesome full extension face moves, which gave me a good pump.

I remember this route being super-pumpy. I had considerably more trouble with this than Slipper Queen on Contest Wall the next day. But, oh what an incredible climb! Definitely a must do - I will come back and get this.

First ascent- Kevin McLaughlin, Kerry Gunter. We were not into lycra- hence the name. This is a nice route.

Awesome route, Kevin. One of my favorites at Shelf so far....

I did this last April and thought it was one of the best 11s I'd done at Shelf. The first third is easier, slightly funky, and then you get out on the big face and hit the crux sequence. This is very much an endurance climb, once you start into the crux it never really lets up. Each sequence gets a little more straightforward and steeper till the end. I'd give this a full 4 stars.

Pretty solid route until the anchor. Look for a less than obvious undercling to clip the anchors. Still one of the best routes at the Prow.

Super super fun climb. The start is a tad bit awkward, but the stemming makes it very manageable. After that is pretty sustained. I'd have to agree on great movement and rock all the way to the top. Enjoy!
