Description 

This route is about 5 routes left of Little Mecca, tucked into a corner with Cattle Prod on the right, and Turbo Road on the left.

This is a very fun line and has great continuity and stone. The crux is getting through the thin stuff in the first 3 bolts. After that, the remainder of the route is just very continuous at the 10+ to 11- level, all the way to the anchors. This has beautiful pockets and is super clean. It is nice and long as well - about 90 feet.

About 10 bolts to anchors.

This is the funniest route I have done so far at Shelf Road.
Sustained crimpy crux for the first 3 bolts.
Pure delight remains all the way to the anchors.
One of the longer route at Shelf that adds to the pleasure of this climb.

Mega classic, one of the best .11s at Shelf. Good stone, long & well bolted - get on it!

This is a good route. The first 4 or 5 bolts have great climbing, and the upper half is pretty fun also.
