Description

Horseshoe begins at the same location as Hand Grenade (5.10a crack). Mantle onto a ledge (5.10a) and traverse left to the first of four bolts. Sustained moves on edges lead to the second bolt (powerful to clip). The third bolt is approx. 15 ft. up an left. The rock quality is suspect directly above the second bolt but improves. Technical moves up and right lead to the fourth bolt. Continue up and right to a nice hand crack (5.8) and follow it to the top.

The path the route follows is like a Horseshoe turned on its side. If the rock quality was better I would give the climb two or possibly three out of three stars.

Protection

Four well-spaced bolts protect the majority of this steep and sustained face climb. An optional 2" cam will fit in the 5.8 hand crack near the top. Three distantly spaced bolts on top can be used to set up an anchor.
