Description
Scramble up the low angle slab to begin.
Use the right hand crack/block with some left hand face holds to get past clip 1 to a stance. Follow the crack/face straight up through this well protected 3 clip section to another stance. The crux starts here with good but a bit harder climbing with good feet. Follow the continuing crack for 3 clips to another good stance. Go through the last two clips with interesting moves to the anchors.

The bolts are a couple of feet to the left of the crack, which makes them harder to clip, unlike Crinoid Corner where they are much closer to the crack you are climbing.
The crux is the roof at the fifth bolt, which starts from a pretty large ledge, and the bolt easily clipped from the ledge (I'm 5'11). The bolt is too low above the roof - I climbed to where my waist was even with the bolt and hung on the rope...with rope stretch my feet touched the ledge. So, a fall from the above the bolt or at the awkward clip at the sixth bolt could be an ankle breaker.
Also, the anchors are placed a foot above a good stance for your feet for setting up the rappel or top rope. An extra foot of mediocre climbing is not worth a hanging stance....
I rate this PG-13 because of the fifth bolt and would not recommend this as a beginning leader route. Mar 15, 2012

A bolted crack is a strange thing to me. Although I understand the rationale aforementioned, it would certainly not be accepted practice in sport climbing venues in the east (e.g., Rumney). My Colorado native friend who brought us to Shelf said he saw a young woman lead this crack on all passive gear with style. This was my first visit to Shelf and I am surprised at how many crack lines I saw bolted. Sep 22, 2014
