This route is listed as B&C in the new guidebook. Start in the middle of the face, behind the large pine tree. Work up the face and the right crack of a double crack system. While this line has a lot of face climbing, it also yields quite a lot of crack technique and several nice ledges for resting. Continue working the crack until it runs out on a ledge. Work up a right-facing dihedral to gain a large anchor ledge. Rappel to descend.


This route is on the face right of Shady Character.


8 bolts, bolt anchor.



Fun route, felt more like 5.8. The new D'Antonio guide seems to have a bunch of the routes in this area in the wrong location by one route (has B&C as the corner to the left of this route). Feb 22, 2011

I'll agree with Slim on this. Much closer to 5.8 than 5.10. May 6, 2012

One of the best 9s I've climbed in Shelf yet, but I know I still have lots to explore. Either way - thanks, B&C! Jan 21, 2015

Super fun route for the beginning 5.9-5.10 climber. My buddy and I thought 5.9+. Jan 25, 2016

Really fun route! The anchor bolts were spinnin' and looked a bit rusty though. I chose to set my anchor on the solid anchors for shady character to the left, just makes cleaning the route a touch harder for the top two bolts. Jun 5, 2018
