With a technical start and a powerful middle, Shoot From the Hip offers a little bit of everything. The crux comes roughly half way up the climb, just past the first clip and requires a strenuous lock-off and dynamic move. However, the delicate start or the tricky top section could cause you to fall too.


On the right side of Red Wall, just right of Hard Body.


Bolts and small cams or nuts for the start.

Wow, hardest .10c ever! Although, i guess it helps if you don't do it in 90 degree heat....

The first bolt needs to be replaced or tightened. Gear beta is pretty easy, yellow TCU, blue TCU, blue alien. I took nuts up but didn't place any, the crack is a little weird. Aug 2, 2009

Not sure where 5.10c came from... Oct 3, 2014

This route does feel like a very hard 10c onsight. I don't think the description posted here is accurate though. The beta is strange to figure out first go, but once you've climbed the route there isn't any strenuous lock-off or dynamic move required.

Chimney technique will get you passed the first bolt and into a fingerlock and then up to the lieback. Look for the holds that aren't necessarily painted in chalk. There are multiple unchalked bomber holds on this route. Up top it can be hard to find the best hold for your right hand as your left reaches to the final ledge before the upper slab. Technique will get you through instead of power. Mar 31, 2015
