This route is pretty hard for a sustained 3 clips, hard enough that I'd argue for a 5.11a grade. We had 4 climbers who all got shut down on toprope. The bolts are super good though and I never felt unsafe on lead. Definitely a cool route! May 22, 2017
I would love to see one more bolt placed on the start of this route. It's a pretty sketchy/start given the location. Also, the bolt could function as a pseudo belay anchor for both starting routes. Unfortunately, as is, the belayer is either protected by the tree or the rap chains from the Cricket, both of which are behind the base of the Shrew. Nov 12, 2018
