DescriptionSmoldering Horse Flesh is your typical old-school Shelf Road sport climb: runout, burly & excellent. The climb is marred somewhat by the temptation to stem out right just above the crux, but if taken directly, this is one of the best lines at The Vault and worth every bit of the 12a grade.
Make moderate moves up the steep, dark slab, past a long runout to an easy stance in the obvious scoop. Get psyched for big, committing moves over the steep bulge. Thin pockets & sharp crimps head up the rounded prow, working left eventually to the anchor.
