Description Suggest change

Most of the routes at Shelf that climb black stone have few features, and the few they have are small and slopey. This line is a bit of an exception, offering some great incut pockets and positive edges. Big holds through the low bulge make this a great warm-up option, but be prepared for some old-school bolting.

Begin atop a pedestal and make a few easy moves to reach a slight bulge. A few big cranks and a slight runout lead to a good stance at a horizontal break. More good pockets clear the last vertical bit, then follow an intermittent seam up the final slab.

Location Suggest change

About 30 yards right of The Example, this is the third route from the right on a wide black slab.

Protection Suggest change

4 bolts to 2-bolt open coldshut anchor shared with Five Dollars. The bolts on this are well-spaced, but all of the cruxes are protected. Take care on the easy sections.
