Description

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...it probably isn't...so go climbing instead.

This is a well-bolted (very safe) 5.11 something climb with a long, slabby start that gets you good and warmed up for a short series of hard moves on thin holds.

The business starts on the groovy headwall just to the left of the arete that comprises the bulk of Shark Bait. Thin holds flow nicely to the right of the bolt line and end on a sick, secure jug.


The bolts are plentiful and exactly where you want them! Less experienced climbers can feel free to fall all day long and break their way into an upper grade without fear of death by exsanguination.

Location

The middle-most bolt line on SHARK'S FIN.

Protection

14 bolts. Climbing parties with a 60 meter rope should have the lead climber belay the following climber(s) from the top. Climbers with a 70 meter rope can turn this into a sport climb where belays are done from the ground. Feel free to skip the first two bolts if you have swam with sharks before.
