Tough, frictiony start is the crux, with some thin holds above first bolt. Cruises in 9ish territory after the second bolt. There is a traverse right at a ledge before the third bolt.


Located 15' to the right of Mikey's Mantle where the ground levels off. Alternate start (Direct Shock-10c) is 10 feet to the right and joins Shock Treatment at the third bolt.


4 bolts with a two-bolt anchor

This thing kept spitting me off above the first bolt. Hard slab moves. Jan 23, 2011

I climbed at Boat Rock the next day after this and thought some of the V4's were significantly easier than this climb. Hard to call it 5.11 with a straight face. The moves above the first bolt can be quite terrifying. Have an attentive belayer and don't blow the second clip. Very condition dependent. Mar 3, 2015

I think this has 5 bolts. And a cam or two might be nice otherwise a big gap between bolts. Mar 16, 2018
