DescriptionNickel is located on the left wall of The Shaft. It starts just right of the obvious trad crack of Silver at a thinner seam-crack with face holds. This route is best identified by the bulging, huecoed wall on the route's upper half.
Nickel begins with a stout sequence leading to the crack with jams that are at times less-than-locker. Crank up this (11d) to a good rest below the great-looking huecoed wall. The crux of the route takes the bulge and headwall above. The quality of the easier finishing moves drops precipitously up the final wide crack to the anchors.
Scoping the route carefully from the ground might give a good idea of which hueco might contain the best hold. Or maybe not. Either way, a very good route.
LocationAfter you enter the shaft, go down through the narrow spot towards the right side (facing the left wall) of the rock.
