Description

The face just right of Period Piece climbs up to pleasureable roof moves on big holds. This is surprisingly solid and has a nice position.

Protection

7 bolts to chains.

Hey Aaron, can I ask what you thought the PG-13 was on this route? It seemed pretty safe to me! Mar 21, 2017

I'd say this is a low grade, we all agreed that this was the "hardest" 11a we've all done at Shelf Rd., but then again. it was at the end of the day. and we were all on our 10th climb for the day. Apr 10, 2016

Really nice route with enjoyable moves. There is a chunk of rock that will likely come off in the not too distant future that people may want to be aware of.

It's the block of stone that was, IMO, the most obvious left hand for the start and, based on rubber smear, is used a lot as a foot hold in the moves past the first bolt.

It's too low to be a danger for the belayer but, if it came off as someone was pulling onto the route it could lead to a surprising deck fall that would be short but could still do some damage. Mar 7, 2010

I think it was 11a. It's not that hard over the roof once you find the holds. Apr 7, 2008
I would say two 11b cruxes (by the second bolt and at the big roof.) Nov 26, 2002

I tried to glue some of the holds using liquid nails stone and block adhesive. I don't know how successful this was so I would recommend that the belayer stand under the roof to avoid rockfall danger. I am also ammenable to upgrading the route to 11b if anyone can confirm. %:_) Apr 27, 2002
