This route is classic in my opinion. Sustained and varied climbing with exposure and solid rock. I'm not sure if the climb's name refers to this, but there are certainly three distinct portions of this route. Part one - climb a steep face on nice holds clipping a few bolts as you go. A cruxy mantle move gains a sloping ledge below a crack in a left facing corner. Part two - climb the short, but steep corner (gear here) to a hands free stance on the right edge of the face. Enjoy the views of Lake George and get ready for some exposure. Part three - move up to the right side an outside corner (arete). Reach around left and clip a bolt. Make another move or two up and then make an exciting and exposed move around to the left with 100 feet of air below. Clip one more bolt and pull through to the top on jugs. The bolt anchor is now equipped for rapping.


Second line of bolts from the right end of the Carhartt Wall. Starts on a small ledge with a tree.

Great route, not afraid to say that this one is one of the best climbs on Shelving, my favorite there and definitely worth doing. Aug 7, 2013

The last clip may be spicy for someone just breaking into the grade. Although it is on jugs a fall has the potential to be nasty. Sep 2, 2013

Awesome pitch. My stomach was in my throat as I moved around the upper arete. The last bolt is indeed a tough clip; the hold there is not a jug, and the pump has set in at that point. After we'd finished with Three Degrees, I just had to take a TR run up Carhartt Confidentials while the rope was up there - excellent crack climbing on the upper half, but man, the thought of pulling on all that broken rock down low protected by likely-dodgy gear gave me the willies.

Same as Benjaminadk I too found a .75 took the bite out of the last clip. Extend it long. Not ideal due to the fractured rock but for short folks it's helpful. Oct 26, 2015
