The route boasts an inspirational runout after the second bolt (solid 5.9) atypical for the first ascentionist who normally had more conservative protection ideas. The leader died while climbing out an easier route that same day. p1 is 140' to the "toilet bowl" anchor (clean gear), p 2 about 50'
On the large lower Neptune slab this is the rightmost line of bolts. A different line branches off at the start to the left, but Shanashee heads right up to a good stance and bolt then to a short right facing flake for a fixed wire and other gear. Approach is best via the Neptune/Aegir gully off the midway ledge system.
