Description

Begins about 30 feet right of Dust Lust on a left-facing wall that contains two bolted routes. A Sharp is the rightmost route.

  • Note: There is a discrepancy concerning which of these two routes is A Sharp. Van Horn's guide shows the route to the left as A Sharp (previously identified in this database as B Flat - see route C Major) and does not identify the route on the right. For clarity and consistency, this description refers to the rightmost route as A Sharp and the left route as B Flat.

Fun opening moves lead up a shallow, left-facing dihedral and over a short roof to a number of painful one and two finger pockets. Much easier than its 5.10b neighbor to the left.

Protection

5 bolts + anchor.

I thought this climb to be better than expected. My book gave it zero stars, but I found the climbing to be very technical and thoroughly enjoyable. A little sharp, yes, but this is Shelf Road, and the sharp holds didn't detract from the climbing. Mar 19, 2018
