Anyone know what the route just left of "Something on the Shield" is called or rated? It was a fun climb, and I was just curious. Had fun exploring this area last weekend. Oct 13, 2015

Short route just left is 'Trigger Happy'. It is given 10a, but I've always felt the tenuous moves down low to be hard. Most of the routes on this part of the dome check in at about the same range (10 through 11-) it seems to me. Oct 17, 2015
