|(6) Shield Wall
Right on the arete next to the MD Route. This is probably one of the super classics of the area. The climb starts in a corner, busts out to an arete and then continues up the sweet face. The moves up top are really fun; make you wish it would go forever.

Mostly bolts. You definitely need to bring some gear. Gear from 0.5 to 1 camalot should be enough. I did not place any, but there are some good nut placements as well.

Kevin's last name is Rauch, and this John Stewart (FA-ist) route was a classic from the get-go.

This route should be moved to the Shield Wall, if for no other reason than to mirror the guidebook.
