This is the classic, crimping, hard 11.


Homemade hangers and cold shuts.

One of Shelf's best. The moves getting established on the face are pretty desperate. Mar 22, 2004

Great rests bolt to bolt. A long wingspan helps in upper pocket section. Jun 12, 2007

Excellent route! Great rest?? Pretty desperate middle crux on a very thin crimp leads to wonderful, yet sustained, climbing up top. Feb 14, 2013

If you can pull the move on this "11d", the crux of ejection seat will feel like a piece of cake. Jan 20, 2014

First ascent was in 1990. Not sure where the sandbag, published grade originates, but it's a good bit harder than 11d. Jan 20, 2015

Hardware upgraded 4-25-15. Four new 1/2" stainless lead bolts plus anchors (shared with Motif). Thanks to ASCA for the hardware! Apr 27, 2015

The crux over the bulge feels like V4-BV5, depending on your reach and footwork. Fierce line with beautiful throws to pockets following the crux. Harder than any other 5.11 I've done. The only 5.11 I have not on-sighted at Shelf as well. I thought Gym Arete was easier. Forget the numbers, and have fun trying hard on this classic! Jan 27, 2016
