I personally feel this route is a litte easier than its 5.8 rating (I THINK it's listed as a .7 in Stuart Green's Colorado guidebook). Ascend fairly easy and gradually steepening rock through 7 bolts directly up the face. The crux is high on the route, where the angle steepens and the holds thin out a little. Every more difficult move is well-protected, and almost every bolt has a bomber clipping stance. The rock is very solid, with very few of the typical Shelf Road sharp edges. This route makes an excellent introduction to Shelf Road limestone for a beginning or intermediate leader.
