Description

Climb the less vertical Southeast corner of the Shark's tooth. Easy climbing takes you to a high first bolt. From there keep using the arete and face holds over to the anchor on the West face (3-bolt anchor).

Protection

Couple of quickdraws.

I wouldn't recommend this route. The start is a bit tough for someone shorter and the first bolt is pretty high. I feel like you would still deck even after the bolt. Jul 10, 2017

There is no reason to climb this when you have the 3-bolt arĂȘte 20 feet away. Jan 29, 2015

Guidebook had total length as 25' with the bolt at 15' but I'd estimate 35-40' length with bolt at 20-25'. There's an uninspiring sling over a knob before the bolt is clipped. The move off the ground is 5a/b in terms of UK technical grades (and the move above the bolt isn't much easier) so the given grade of 5.8 seems ungenerous. Oct 3, 2014

Old school climb, one 1/4" button-head with a spinner and nothing else for protection (yeah, you'd be lucky if your sling stayed on those knobs).
