This route tackles the smooth face just left of a major left-facing corner (about 50 yards north of The Apple Bites Back). It's a sustained 5.11 face climb to a killer crux at the top.


10 bolts. It's long, but you only need a 50m to lower.
Very tough crux bulge to flash. Mar 30, 2002

This route has 10 bolts on it and the Shelf Road guide states 7 bolts. Luckily for me I was hang-dogging it a bit up top and could back clean a couple of draws for the final two clips. :-) Enjoyable route for sure. Nov 13, 2007

I thought this was a great route very sustained with a nice jug before the crux. Hard to figure out at first but not bad with good beta. Oct 5, 2009

Very tough onsight. Hell, it was hard after I took at the crux, lol. Tricky, but awesome and very unique. Stays with you the whole way. Nov 1, 2009

Hitting the crux in sequence is very difficult, a take/fall at bolt eight lets you cheat the beta pretty hard. Sep 9, 2012

The hanger immediately above the first (only?) roof is loose. I still clipped the bolt, but it could use a good tightening. Feb 20, 2018

Oh wow, that's devious up there! Tricky second roof with lots of chakly sucker holds. The top move is harder than the rest of the route, for sure, but it's really cool, and the rest of the route is really fun! Apr 23, 2018
