Description

Start 10 feet right of "Fat Burger" in the Thompson guide. Climb up an obivous crack/corner past two bolts. Reach left clipping a bolt on the left side of the crack. Fire up a steep face (crux) and reach a ledge below a thin hands crack. Fire up the crack on good jams to the anchor. One of the best crack climbs at Shelf.

Protection

11 bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.

Good route but I found the bottom crux face to be much harder than 10c. I rated it 10d on this site but only because I may have missed something.... The top felt like solid 10c though. Aug 27, 2007

The guide mentioned that heading directly into the seam on the bolt line goes at 11a while stepping right and using the pockets to avoid it is 10c. That felt very accurate to me -- I would give the seem section 11a. Great climbing up top in dihedral. Amazing jams. May 11, 2009

The top is awesome, varied 5.9 jammin'/stemmin', but the lower half is awkward to stay on the bolt line. Best to skip it by using the right pillar liberally. Jan 7, 2018
