Another fine line at one of the better walls at Shelf. This route used to be 12b in Van Horn's old book, but has been slightly downrated. Perhaps (much like the Mutant on Incredible Hulk boulder) the traffic over the years has taken the edge off of a few holds. God knows there are a few routes at Shelf where the crux is taking the pain.

To find this route, hike up the Sand Gulch canyon to the Freeform Wall. Towards the left end of the wall is a bolted chimney with red homemade hangers. This is Barney (5.9). Two bolted lines to the right is Helter Skelter. There is a very slight V-notch near the second bolt.

This is another route that can really sap your strength, especially if you don't stand up on your feet.

Crank past 7 bolts worth of very nice moves. If the razor crimp near the top is still hones, you will be the first to know. Have fun.


7 bolts and anchors.
