Ok climb, not the greatest. It has a fun start, tricky moves on pockets. Then at about half way the climb gets very easy because of a large flake to the left, which goes all the way to the anchors. Oct 10, 2008

Ashley: Yeah, the climbing gets easy, but the clipping gets scary. I'm guessing the bolt-setter wanted folks to follow the bolts and not bail left but then it'd be a short 11a midsection with a thin 12ish thing at the top, which no-one seems to do, judging by the chalk.

Save your strength, skip this one, and climb one of the fantastic 11s further down the wall. May 26, 2009

I followed the bolt line directly on great pockets and fun moves never felt harder than the grade given, it's still worth doing because you can get a TR on Little Mecca from this route. Mar 22, 2012

Eh. Fun-ish start but weird finish. You can work the much harder 11+ face following the bolts directly, or the much easier jugs to the left making awards clips to your right. Dec 22, 2013

Going straight up the boltline on the bulge makes this route a three-star .11c in my opinion...unfortunateley it's easy to cheat out left, but that doesn't detract from the fun start. All in all not the worst route at Shelf and deserves more traffic. Oct 30, 2017
