"This climbs the dark black streak left of Black is Beautiful. Traverse to the first bolt from the left. One red hanger at the start."

-From Fred Knapp's Shelf Road Rock.

The crux for me was between bolts 2 and 3. There was some non-trivial sequencing to work out, to say the least!


The first five routes at Far Side begin atop a large terrace above the trail and can be accessed most easily from the West side (after the 5th route, Thick As Thieves, 5.12a). Iguana Breath is the first route on the smooth North-facing rock atop this terrace.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
