Shark's Breath can be found in the Rushmore guide book, but the bolts have recently been upgraded and a couple have been added. The pro is now better than the description in the guidebook.

Climb the bolt line that parallels the arete. Some moves seem better on the face, than hanging off the arete, and the new bolts suggest a more face-oriented route.


Well protected with about 10 bolts (recently replaced).
