From the "bottom" of the crag, go up to the right a couple of meters and you find yourself at the start of "...Don't be Shy" and "Face the Seam." The latter starts directly below the obvious (and sometimes mossy) notch.


3 bolts to anchors

The start of this route is extremely reachy and a little beta-intensive. Once you have the crux sequence dialed though, its a great route for running laps. Jul 24, 2007
This was a fun climb EXCEPT several of the bolts on the route are 1/4" oldies. The cold-shuts at the top are coming out of the rock, too. Somebody put in a good bolt above them, but I would either bring a bailer-biner to lower off of that with, or cross your fingers when you rap off the cold-shuts. Sep 24, 2012

I don't think these are 1/4-inchers. Memory tells me that they are actually 3/8" externally-threaded sleeve bolts like this. The bolts are not good, but definitely better than 1/4".

Is there still a second set of bolts located 8 feet or so higher up the wall/gully, above the cold shuts? Sep 24, 2012
The protection on this climb is SKETCHY!. I wound not put ANY faith in the lower anchors. If you are even thinking about using them, rap off the top and take a look first. the third bolt is solid, but both shuts are spinning. BAD. It looks like 1/4" or more of sandstone has eroded from the rock since these shuts were placed. There are additional shuts with a bonus bolt 10 or 12 feet above those. One of these shuts is also spinning. Dec 8, 2012
