The Shuttler

5.10a, Sport, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 2.5 from 20 votes
FA: unknown
Washington > Southwest Cascades > OH8

Description

Easy, 5.8 block/ledge climbing up to the last bolt. Final moves surmounting the overhang/nose feature at the top of the route are where it earns the grade.

Location

Near the end of the approach trail, 20 feet right of "Forest Circus Fiasco", at the bottom of a dip in the trail. Easily recognized by the large pointy "nose" that sticks up at the top of the route (looks a bit like something out of a Dr. Seuss landscape).

Protection

Quickdraws. Bolted anchors.

[Hide Comment] Maybe I went too far right at the end? But what I did was a super-simple boulder problem - big holds, big feet, then you're at a good stance at the chains. Fun romp! Feb 22, 2020
