The Conch climbs up the pocketed right side of the Lord of the Flies wall. Great warm-up for the harder routes on this wall.
Begin by pulling the small roof right off the ground and then follow big, widely spaced pockets up and left. The crux at mid-height is tricky (think undercling), and the top has claimed more than a few pumped climbers. Enjoy!

An excellent climb. Five stars on a four star scale. The climb looks a little run-out when you look at it from the ground (compared to other canyon routes), but once you get on it you realize it is not run-out at all. The clipping stances are excellent. Maybe a warm-up for alot of you, but not for me. This was my first 5.11 on-sight.
