Climb the same start as The Function for about 6 bolts, then head right where you can skip the bed-rail hanger and go to the next good bolt. Try to avoid pump on marginal rests on small feet and push through a very thin crux. Your toes will hate you for this.


It is in the black rock with a slightly lighter streak at the top, veering right from The Function.

Excellent route. I thought it was every bit as good as 'The Function' - more continuous climbing, and it doesn't have that awkward runout mantle. A lot of groping on this one, there are a million pockets and few of them are good. I couldn't decide between 11d and 12a, so I let the consensus guide me. Apr 9, 2013

Top 10 for the grade at Shelf. Really enjoyed this climb. I thought harder than Nyorgai to onsight. Needs more chalk, hard to read. May 7, 2016
