Description Suggest change

The Shaft starts just right of the large corner system on the left side of the West Slab. A couple of 5.12a cruxes and a small roof comprise the difficulties. The climbing is thin, continuous, challenging, and satisfying. The climbing is largely on crisp edges, but getting into and out of the roof uses a bit of thin undercling and a small section of layaways in the right facing corner leading up to the roof. Fun moves in this part. Bolts have been updated in some place, but still cast a wary eye toward the pro.

Protection Suggest change

QDs only. This 60 foot route needs 7 or 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. This route shares an anchor with the Kurt Smith Route (5.12c) to the left.
