DescriptionSharon's Lead is another 5.9 climb at the NNP, but is more of a one-move wonder compared to the 5.9 cracks to its left.
Start right of the skull graffiti. Climb up and left along hand crack. Don't continue up the obvious finger crack above- that is Sharon's Sandbag (5.9). Instead, place a 3" cam, make a reachy move out right to a big ledge, cut your feet loose and mantle. Follow 5.7 cracks in a shallow dihedral from this ledge to the top.
The guidebook says the rating is disputed and potentially as hard as 5.11, which might be accomplished by a contrived (and unprotected) direct route to the mantle ledge.
