Start on the first route encountered on the left side as you enter The Shaft. This route runs up a great arete for 40 feet. The climbing is tricky, and a lot more pumpy than it would appear. As you move through The Shaft, the routes on the left run from 5.10c to 5.12a/b while those on the right run from 5.9 to 5.10+. At last count, there were over a dozen worthy climbs here.


QDs only. This short route needs only 6 or 7 QDs and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
