Description

Climb on great big holds to and past C1 & 2 to a nice stance at C3. Move left to the steepening corner past C4 to C5. Climb the sweet corner with righty clips, smooth right jams, big left flakey sidepulls with smallish feet past 3 more clips to the anchors.

Location

Walk down the Bank road. Find the Surreal Estate trail. Hike up to the wall and go left for about 50 feet and find the obvious large hole above the trail on the right. Start right of the large hole.

Protection & Vitals

8 clips to chained anchors.

This route was first done as a trad route and is also known in previous guidebooks as "Tsunami". FA: Bob Robertson, Ed Quesada, and Harvey Miller.

When we first looked at this route in 2005, we thought it had some potential. We did not know it was a old trad route. We removed a tsunami of loose rock from this corner and a lot of vegetation at the top.

I believe this route was originally led on gear. Tsunami, 5.9. The climb actually might be easier on gear, since the bolts are right of the center, but who takes gear to Shelf right? Dec 21, 2016
