Description

Start on good stone and end on good stone. Follow pockets and edges to a ledge rest, then chase a cool arete, step right on the face, and decide how to finish. There are two ways to finish, lieback the offwidth-ish thing or chimney and offwidth it (slightly easier).

Location

This is the route imbetween "Awesome Offwidth" and Super Suka. A few paces left of Hot Beach, Tits Up, Bla Bla Bla.

Protection

A mess of draws.

Cool route except for the end. The anchors should have been at the last bolt, which is also the hardest to clip - stay on the face the whole way.... Mar 19, 2010

This climb is actually a lot of fun, and it is not likely to be as crowded as other Cactus Cliff routes are. I highly recommend doing it. Unlike what is stated above, not using the massive offwidth at the top would mean doing the 5.12 finish to Supa Suka. I think the offwidth adds an extra dimension to the route- something you don't often get on most Shelf face climbs. Apr 12, 2010

There are 3 major flakes/chucks on this route that should NOT be pulled on. The bottom 2 are just above the first bolt, in the middle of the crack, and the top one is near the last bolt. Don't pull or your belay will need to run! Oct 11, 2010

I did this on Dec '11. There is a key flake for the end that is gone. I cleaned up a good-sized chunk still sitting there. There is no longer a right-side finish. IMO, the anchors should be moved down. Dec 29, 2011

Nice long pitch with fun climbing. Squeeze chimney at the top (not an OW) is a cool change of pace for Shelf. Jan 5, 2015
