Shop and Compare climbs the brown wall that is in ...
This is a great journey through steep patina plates, cracks, and edges.
P1: Follow the ramp to the left of the Splitter crack. Use a finger/hand crack (gear) to reach the first bolt. Angle back right to reach the steep juggy face above.
P2: Continue up the wall with more steep climbing to belay on a good ledge. A small wire could be placed after the last bolt, but it is easier here.
P3: Angle left to hit the arete for the final bolted pitch.
I highly recommend linking P1 and P2 with a 70M rope. A 60M rope would also probably work. You will need to back clean a couple clips and use long runners on a few key bolts to reduce drag, though.
Start up the ramp to the left of the Splitter crack
Light rack to 1.5 inches

I'm not sure that a light rack is necessary. Getting to the first bolt a bit tricky...I guess that you could place a #2 cam in the crack before the first bolt, after that no need for gear...in my opinion. I carried a light rack only to have it clang around behind me throughout the climb. There is a place that you could place a #1 or #2 on the second pitch (it's a ways between bolt, but the climbing is pretty easy). I think that this was a really cool climb and very well bolted.

Agreed, a number 2 camalot was nice before clipping the first bolt. Then I removed it after clipping the bolt for less rope drag. No other gear necessary. A fantastic sport route.

Did this route last week. Very fun and a great last pitch. I could see where a little gear could be used at the top of the second pitch but probably not needed as the climbing eases up.

Fun route! Only gear I used was a single .5 camalot twice on the first pitch. Once before the first bolt and then another temp placement before clipping the 4th bolt. I used long slings on 2nd & 3rd bolts and had no rope drag. 1st half of last pitch is superb!
