Description Suggest change

Shark Bait is one of the finer pitches at the Pit, and maybe the best for the grade. Shares start with Purple Shark.

Start out a roof which turns quickly into a steep scooped out section of the arete. the low crux is getting to the second bolt, and is some what intimidating, until you figure out the sequence through the myriad of pockets. A couple big moves leads you to the arête and several more engaging moves. At the obvious break, Purple Shark moves out and left, while Shark Bait continues more or less straight up, passing the redpoint crux via positive gastons, side pulls, and a few spiny nubbins.

Good consistent climbing for the grade, separated by good rests.

Location Suggest change
