This climbs ascends the center of the south face on Shoshone.

P1: Climb left slanting corner to the right tree about 80ft up.
P2: Climb obvious cracks to sporty finish (over nuts).
P3: Climb another obvious crack 11- to an corner/overhang. I hear you can bail left for easier climbing but the original goes straight up after the overhang.
P4: Climb up big left facing corner till underneath the summit roof. Bail out to the right/east and up into a flared chimney with good jams and holds.


The route starts about 50ft right of the Original Shoshone route. Look for a left slanting crack going up to the right most of two trees.


Single rack to BD #3, maybe some extras of 1,2,3,4 metolius, wires, tricams.
