Description

The Shard is not a new problem, but it was climbed post-2007, so it's not in Kelly's 1st edition. It starts with both hands on the big rounded sloper dish on the far left side of the rail. Climb right through techy sloper moves, and top out by rocking over once you reach the end of the rail, using decent crimps.
Not certain about the grade so please contribute to the consensus if you've done it.

Location

The striking right-leaning sloper rail on the left side of the trail as you hike up towards Hanta Man. Dark rock, undercut beneath, and the lip is not more than 6 feet off the ground at any point.
The whole rock looks like a huge, angular piece of shrapnel.

Protection

2-3 pads, and a spotter.

I'd say V5... That's what most other people have said too, I think.. It'd be the easiest V6 problem in leavenworth at the grade. May 23, 2013
