The crux is getting to the ledge. It has good fingers. There is sketchy rock to get to the anchor. Use a directional cam after the lower section to keep the rope out of the crack.


This is left of Frankies stuff.


Standard rack. Lower off anchor.

The iffy rock above the ledge (same as Shark Jaw) is reason enough that I'd never come back after I redpoint this route. You could theoretically pull a big piece off on your belayer. Heads up and wear a helmet.

I agree. Very iffy rock up there! It was fun once, but like you said no need to go back...the whole wall is a boobie lower section, though. Maybe could use a low anchor just after the first ledge...easier warm up for the area. FA was in a snow storm at at 30 degrees or so... my fingers were sharkcicles!
