Description

A fun little route. The rock's a bit different than you'd find at the rest of the Shield. Fun patina-like edges and some pockets/horizontals. A good warmup.

Location

Just before the main approach trail hits the cliff base, look for a small spur trail shooting off left. Follow this into the forest and to the base.

Protection

Take draws. Rap bolts on top.

...yeah, awesome route. I agree, a bit thin for 5.7, but fun place to cool down and relax once the sun hits the rest of the Shield. Dec 16, 2010

Short but fun climb. Thin edging for a 5.7. Aug 1, 2009
