The crux is clipping the last bolt before the anchor for sure. There are some nice small foot holds that may not be obvious at first, so take your time to look for them, but the fall on this climb is so clean. If you have a hard time clipping, you can definitely skip the last bolt. The last two bolts are really close to each other. Jan 29, 2015

Comparing it to another classic Shelf 11a, "I Lean", this might be a little stiff.... I might give it 11b. Very fun and engaging climb! Nov 30, 2013
So I climbed this route about three weeks ago. The right anchor was in pretty bad shape. I'm not sure how anchor replacement initiative works, but I would definitely recommend this route to be put on the list. Awesome route by the way. Feb 18, 2012

Well said, lbishop. Were this longer, it would easily get 4 stars. Great moves on it. Made for a nice cool down after a long hard day! May 11, 2009

Awesome route! Only thing keeping it from classic status is the length. Good sustained climbing once the crux begins up to the chains. Pretty sharp holds and stellar movement over bomber rock. Nov 26, 2007

Excellent technical route. Aug 29, 2006
We TR'd this route last weekend as Chamo describes above. I found the climb to be of good qualtiy with fairly well placed bolts... a good route to come back and lead. May 10, 2005
Sharp hold at the crux. It's possible to top rope this route after leading 21st Century Man; just leave a quickdraw on the anchors as a directional as you are lowered off of 21st to cancel the potential pendulum. Sep 7, 2004
