Description Suggest change

About 40 feet right of Da Fly on the next buttress with an overhanging bulge at mid height, this route starts on red rock with an obvious, chalked jug at the first bolt. It follows a medium-sized, left-facing dihedral to a hands off ledge (5.11) then fires up well protected blocky stone to the overhang. The crux (V6 or 7) involves pinches, two crimps and a sloper, all a wonderful break from the technical tweakiness that usually defines Shelf Road. Pull the crux and enjoy beautiful 5.10 climbing to the chains (even the resemblence of a tufa at the top!) all in all fun movement with a hard hitting crux and no hands rests in between.

Location Suggest change

This is 40 feet right of Da Fly (5.13a) on the next buttress with a small, overhanging roof at mid-height.

Protection Suggest change

Bring 14 quickdraws and a boulderer's mindset.
