Starts on large ledge left of main Red Light District wall (direct start also an option). Stay on the arete for a few moves and then swing onto the right side, making easy moves on the face to a juggy, horizontal break in the rock. Shake out and get ready to run it out a bit to the chains. In all, a very cool route.


Cold Shoulder is in the Red Light District. Locate an arete to the left of the main Red Light District wall.

This is my favorite 5.10 single pitch sport route of all time. The movement is delicate, and never a gimmie. If you like arete climbing, or want to taste a really good one, hop on this route. Please don't tick up the holds though, part of the appeal of the route is finding some hidden holds! Ready to up your game? Hit Vapor Lock, the other arete on this outcropping! May 26, 2014
your comment got me really stoked on this Wei-Ming and it is a fantastic route! Dec 13, 2015
Careful up top, seemed like the big jug/flake just below the anchors would like to flex off when pulling out rather than down sometime soon... Mar 16, 2018
