Sharp hold at the crux. It's possible to top rope this route after leading 21st Century Man; just leave a quickdraw on the anchors as a directional as you are lowered off of 21st to cancel the potential pendulum.

We TR'd this route last weekend as Chamo describes above. I found the climb to be of good qualtiy with fairly well placed bolts... a good route to come back and lead.

Awesome route! Only thing keeping it from classic status is the length. Good sustained climbing once the crux begins up to the chains. Pretty sharp holds and stellar movement over bomber rock.

Well said, lbishop. Were this longer, it would easily get 4 stars. Great moves on it. Made for a nice cool down after a long hard day!

So I climbed this route about three weeks ago. The right anchor was in pretty bad shape. I'm not sure how anchor replacement initiative works, but I would definitely recommend this route to be put on the list. Awesome route by the way.

Comparing it to another classic Shelf 11a, "I Lean", this might be a little stiff.... I might give it 11b. Very fun and engaging climb!
