Pulling the main roof on Wadsworh Blvd, Shelf Road...
Start just right of Hot .. Beach, and climb through two small roofs on amazing features. This is a very fun laybacking outing, highly recommended. It is well-protected at the crux but very runout above near the anchor on easy terrain.
11 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with chains. Sizeable runouts (20 feet) on 5.8 terrain at the top.

Runouts on the top were not as bad as I expected. It may be they added a bolt or two or that it just seems tougher after pulling the two ledges.

The last couple of bolts are a little runout compared to the closely-spaced bolts near the two lower roofs, but the climbing is fairly easy. However, these last bolts can be supplemented with finger-sized cams.

Tons of fun, short cruxes, lots of rests. This has to be the easiest 10c at Shelf, considering I got up it no problem...
I thought Blackman's Burden, Christmas Tree, and Politically Incorrect were all way harder.
Good luck getting on it on a weekend.

The guidebook calls Wadsworth 10b.

There is quite a bit of loose rock on this route. I counted 4 loose blocks with Xs on them, which included the most obvious clipping holds for the bolt at the end of the runout section. Use caution, it would be a long ride....

Very beta-intense and cool crux moves.
My math might be a little fuzzy, but not sure how an 80 ft. route with 11 bolts is 'runout.' Also, you can get up and down this with a 50m no problem.

Make sure to flip your rope out of the crack between the 8th and 9th bolts! Our rope got stuck there.

Over chalked and polished... even by Shelf standards. Still a good climb, but it's taking a beating.
