Description [Suggest Change]

The climb starts in the gully high on the left side of Shadow Rock. It's base is just before the gully gets steep. Ascend the line of bolts to the crux at the third bolt. Run it out on easy ground to the shared anchors for Swallow, 1st Offense, & Easy Street. Anchor is setup for Rap.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three well placed bolts. Two bolt belay.

THC now "sports" all quality bolts. Removed one 1/4" buttonhead placed by Ken Klis on lead some 15 or so years ago. Rumor had it he was (just speculating here) stoned at the time. We also "camouflaged" the bolts by spraying them with (semi)rock-matching paint. Give this route a try. It's on really high quality rock and has great views. We found that it was still climbable even though the fog was so thick it was practically raining. Base is a bit loose so be careful about knocking rocks on your friends below. Mar 14, 2005

The climb isn't particularly aesthetic looking but the moves are fun, balancy and sustained with some long reaches. After top-roping it the first time I later returned and led it. Don't pull too hard on the first jug, which is slightly loose, because it would really hurt if it popped off. Otherwise it's a safe lead. As I recall the best holds were usually on the left side of the line of bolts. Mar 22, 2010
