Description

Also known as La Estacion de Shelf.

Two routes left of the red buttress of Crimpson Candy.

Climb the steep crack that splits the face. The off-width sections can be handled with a combination of stemming and occasional hand jams deep in the crack. A nice route that is probably easier for those with solid crack technique. If finger cracks aren't your forte, the last few bolts can easily be supplemented with TCUs. Think of this as a crack climber's sport route. Great fun.

Protection

7 bolts to anchors.

Fun, fun climb. Always nice to work an offwidth on a sport crag.... Dec 29, 2010

Bring your rack for this one. Great hand and fist jams with a nice rest towards the top where the crack widens. Once out of the rest, you can lay back with solid hands and feet. Loved it so much I did it twice. Mar 24, 2013

No real offwidth moves because of the bountiful face holds. Great flow and bolts only where you need them but still plenty safe. Get on it! Apr 23, 2017
