Description Suggest change

This climbs the wall between "NBA" and "Straight and Narrow".

One of my all time favorites at Shortoff. My original intention the day this line was put up was to do NBA instead. However, when I actually got on the line I was terrified of (rope soloing on) that manky and very crucial fixed gear (it has since been replaced). So I decided to try this one instead -- I'd had my eye on it for a long time but hadn't actually gotten on it yet because it looked like it'd need bolts. I had no kit that day... Anyway, the original thin nuts were quite sketchy (read falling out) but they have since "settled in" quite nicely with some traffic. Although not as serious as its neighbor to the left, you should still be on your gear-placing A-game for this one.

P-1 Climb the moderate face just left of the water, and up to a small ledge about 150', and about 20' below the steeper wall. P-2 Climb the slab up to a short seam, which leads to a right diagonaling crack feature (crux), which leads to a jug ladder. Those jugs are huge.

Standard rack. Maybe a few extra small nuts/RP's
