Description

A series of boulder problems over an upside-down staircase of roofs, split by good rests. Start in the corner and traverse out right onto the easy slab. The first, hardest crux is turning the lip of the first roof, with a dyno to hard to see crimps. Another easy slab leads to the next roof, where a traverse to the arete on the right leads to some spooky blocks and an easy traverse back left to the anchor.

Location

This is on the left end of the Fish Wall, ascending the steepest wall in the area, up the right side of a dihedral. This wall faces NW, and receives shade until 4pm or so. It is right of Living in a Vacuum.

Protection

Bolts, 2BA.

I have to agree that block is shady and the 5.7 bat shit finish adds nothing to the route. Only two stars till the anchor is moved to right after the second crux/roof. Sweet moves at the cruxes, though. Mar 31, 2015

Really cool route that is definitely worth getting on if you want some steep climbing at Shelf; however, the finish on this climb is kind of lame. Traversing on death blocks using bat shit covered holds is not all that fun. Why they didn't just put the anchor slightly up and right of the last bolt is beyond me. May 6, 2013

The big plank you traverse left across at the top to reach the anchors sketched me out a bit. I'd hate to send that straight down on the belayer. It's probably fine but sure looks precarious. Aug 23, 2011
