This is about halfway down Contest Wall (left side of Sand Gulch). It is the rightmost route of three on the left wall of an inside corner (Cactus Drop to left, and Little Mecca to its left). This is a fine route that ascends a clean face via edges and pockets. One admires the moves as one moves through interesting cruxes over small overlaps.
7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Superb route! Better than 3 stars. One of the best moderate 11's at Shelf. I can't believe it took this long to bolt it. Varied and sustained moves up perfect rock. The opening moves are a series of sinker pockets with a couple of edges thrown in. The crux is about half way up and is a thin undercling to clear a small (6")roof. A good shake is just beyond and then some slightly easier moves leads to the anchors.

Great route, one of the best I've done at Shelf!
Based on other 11s I've done at Shelf, and in keeping with Rico's 'slash' grade system (imho, a good one), I'd call this 5.11a/b.

A few days ago I broke a very solid looking foothold off around the 3rd bolt. Be careful out there and remember to wear a helmet!

A truly amazing route. Unquestionably one of my favorite 11s at Shelf. Without a doubt a must do.
