DescriptionAmong the very best of the grade at Shelf Road, The Fridge climbs a flawless panel of cream stone, featuring a long stretch of fist-deep, incut pockets, a cerebral crux, sustained difficulty, and a wild position on a slightly overhanging wall. This route is more exposed to the wind and gets shade before any other route in the Tropics, making it a great choice on a warmer day.
Begin at ground level & stick clip the first bolt. A few easy moves lead to a ledge on the right. Fire up the brilliant line of pockets, making big cranks between sinker pockets. At mid-height, a horizontal break provides a last shake before the crux. Clear the slight bulge with athletic moves to a pair of big but slopy pockets. From here, a series of thoughtful-but-not-too-hard boulder problems work between successive horizontal breaks.
LocationHike ~4-5 minutes left (south) from where the approach trail meets the cliff, to locate an orange wall of clean stone with an obvious bulge running the width of the cliff at 1/3 height. This is the "Tropical Wall". This line climbs the east face of the obvious detached pillar located at the far right end of the wall.
The route begins at ground level.
