A short, pure-stemming corner.

If leading this seems too intimidating for you, then you can climb to the top via the 5.8 just left of the corner, and easily set up a TR.


Obvious 90 degree open book just left of Toxic Shock.


Thin wires. Take particular care to securely set the first few. Originally, bomber RPs (narrow brass, brazed wired nuts) were used, but offset brazed nuts (e.g., HBs) may work even better.

I started cleaning that left leaning crack above this route and I even put anchors in, but that was before I knew what I was doing. They are stainless and galvanized mix... yikes. I gave up on that project though because of how hollow the blocks sound up there. Fun climbing though. I wonder if TVFTB will ever get cleaned.... May 3, 2017

That line above does look thin and flaky. Perhaps Stamati, it could just be a TR route? May 4, 2017
