Description

The mega classic corner looming overhead when you get to the top of the trail. Desert Shield is probably one of the best .12s in the Creek, IMHO. The climbing up to the bolt is casual, then some funky moves get you past the bolt and to a fun bouldery sequence, and then it’s into the perfect enduro corner for the glory.

Protection

4x .5"; 6x .75"; 3x 1"; 1 each green, red, gold Camalot; couple slings and few QDs.
