Climbers on "Shoveling-Cole".
Photo by Blitzo.


This is a beautiful line on the south face of Intersection Rock, it is rarely climbed and has a really clever name...

Climb easy face up to the first bolt of Bilabong, then make a thin move up and left from a second bolt to the steep lieback flake above. Cruise up fun climbing on the face above past a third bolt. Gear belay.

From this belay, best to head left on exciting, loose, but easy climbing to join West Chimney or The Flake to the top.


This route is just left of Bilabong and just right of The Flake on the south face of Intersection Rock.
Rappel off the top from a bolted rappel.


Three modern bolts, a light rack of cams and stoppers to 2.5". Gear belay thin cams to 2". Wear bright colorful clothing so you be more visible in tourist's vacation photos.
