|Shark's Fin Wall
1.3 miles west of the Beige Siphon Tube is a dirt pullout on the north side of the road. Hike 50 feet east to the gully then 150 feet up and north to the base of the west facing rock. This is the Shark's Fin Wall. The first line of bolts left of the center crack are True Colors. Go straight up the bolt line to a good stance at a horizontal seam. 5.10. Without using the rib on the right, smear up a few feet, (5.11), then up over the roof to the 2 bolt anchor.
4 bolts and some 1 to 2 inch cams. two bolt anchor.

This is a pretty sweet route, definitely worth the hike. In my opinion the best climb in the Shark Fin Wall. (Which has several that are worth the hike.)
With True Colors, you can also go through the crack to the right at the horizontal roof which makes it slightly easier. Bringing a hand sized cam makes it a lot safer and is easily placed anywhere in the crack. (10b) Enjoy.

If you send True Colors, you definitely want to go straight up the gut under the roof, to sustain the 5.10d. The moves are all there.
