5.12d, Sport, 70 ft,  Avg: 3.5 from 4 votes
FA: Darryl Roth, Richard Aschert
Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Rd > Gallery > Mural Wall


Climbing begins on an easy pillar followed by moderate climbing into a stout, thin, reachy crux.

Fatter fingered climbers will find the crux more difficult, the key crux hold is a thin, shallow, two finger-half pad pocket.

The guide has 12c and the beta photo 12d. I couldn't decide, so I split the difference. It seemed too thin for 12c to me.


Start on an easy pillar between M&M and Mosaic.


7 bolts, 2 cold shuts at the anchors.

[Hide Comment] The rating... who knows. I just know that when I put it up, Richard Aschert and I both thought it was 12d, and we were tweaking Shelf thin piss holds pretty well then. Jan 19, 2012
