Description

THE SHIELD DIRECT 5.10a ** (160') F (8b)
A great long slab climb. Begin at the left end of the lower face (by the aspen tree), climbing friction and small nubbin moves to the big ledge (5.11a if the crack is seeping). Continue up the easier upper face on excellent rock to the 2 bolt anchor. 30' of 4th class leads to the top which is easy to walk off of to the south.

Upper slab can be climbed alone (possible then to lower from top anchors with a 60m rope) - 5.9 PG ** 100' F(5b).

Location

The long slab at the left end of the Shield.

Protection

Fixed 8 bolts.
