A great route off the center of the belay ledge on Bulge Wall. Climbs more easily through the bulge than My What a... to the left, but pumpy interesting moves continue until the chains are reached.


9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Not nearly as hard as the other 11d's in the area.

I think the concensus grade (generally held opinon) for this one is 11c, but it's still a real beauty of a route.

Good stuff! The lower bulge wasn't as difficult as it looked, and the cruiser section in the middle was a nice break before the business through the final clips.

FA was, I believe, Mark Van Horn. Man, Mark has an eye for good lines. All his routes at Shelf that I've been on are grand.
