This route tackles the smooth face just left of a major left-facing corner (about 50 yards north of The Apple Bites Back). It's a sustained 5.11 face climb to a killer crux at the top.
10 bolts. It's long, but you only need a 50m to lower.
About to start the first crux section.
Midway up the route.
A tricky section.
Not the best clipping holds.
Approaching the first (easiest) roof on Phase Danc...
Mike wishing he had sunglasses for the upper crux.

The top anchors were looking pretty shitty as of today.

This route has 10 bolts on it and the Shelf Road guide states 7 bolts. Luckily for me I was hang-dogging it a bit up top and could back clean a couple of draws for the final two clips. :-) Enjoyable route for sure.

I thought this was a great route very sustained with a nice jug before the crux. Hard to figure out at first but not bad with good beta.

Very tough onsight. Hell, it was hard after I took at the crux, lol. Tricky, but awesome and very unique. Stays with you the whole way.

Hitting the crux in sequence is very difficult, a take/fall at bolt eight lets you cheat the beta pretty hard.
