Description

Glad to see Shelving on the Mountain Project. I sent this line a few years ago when living in New Paltz after talking to Haas, who confirmed that it was an open project. This line is fantastic! I would say 12a or 12b.

Location

The center of the steepness. Blocky, bolted right-facing corner (an appx. 1 foot thick overlap forms the corner) to a few pieces of trad gear.

If someone would like an update, please let me know: I just wanted to get this up, as this line deserves some attention!

Protection

Mainly bolts + some gear for the top. Regrettably, I cannot remember the gear.

Stunning line! Climbs the obvious right facing corner, then up the crack to the top of the cliff.

[Hide Comment] Awesome climb! Saying that it's a super sustained endurance climb is an understatement. I only placed a few cams between a green alien and a #2 c4. Bring a long sling(s) if you intend to put some gear below the first bolt. There are 6 bolts that start just to the right of the redtagged project.

You need a 70m rope for this climb. Aug 16, 2015
