This is a very fun route with mostly solid rock. D'Antonio's guide book calls it Musso Route. If someone besides John got the first ascent, please let me know. Nov 17, 2010

This is a fantastic and aesthetic line! I don't think there's a move on it harder than .10b/c but the face is very sustained .10a/b climbing, after blowing your arms on the bouldery start. Well protected, a must-do at Shelf! Jan 23, 2011

Like Bill said, no showstopper crux but plenty of 10ish moves. One of my Shelf favorites. Apr 10, 2011

This is a really good route with good bolt placements. The rock down low isn't great, but the bolts are right where you want them. I avoided pulling on the big flake (4th bolt or so) by going left, which had good climbing. Super fun route and a good find by the FA party. May 30, 2012

As mentioned above, no move above 10c/d. Just stacked. Definite top favorite 11a at Shelf Jan 13, 2014
