Description

Similar to its slabby neighbors, but SHD requires more thinking and delicate balance for some moves. A pleasure to climb.

Apparently, when you hit the crux, if you head Left to the arete the climb is in the 5.7 area, and if you head right and up then traverse back left using the diagonaling crack, it's around 5.8. The true 5.9+ goes straight up the blank face.

Location

Easy to find since "WPS" is spraypainted at the bottom.

Protection

6 bolts to anchors, hardware in good condition.

I would agree with a 5.9 grade if heading straight into the crux. Certainly easier ways around it, nonetheless a fun slab route. Mar 19, 2015

I actually think climbing this crux straight up the face is much harder than the crux of Super Slab. The angle is steeper and there is less friction. And if you blow a move climbing around it using the 5.7 arete or 5.8 right side, be prepared for a swinging whipper. May 18, 2014

This really should be listed at a much easier grade. The 5.9 grade is only relevant if you ignore the left hand arete or the good holds out right. Jan 18, 2013
