Start standing with the left hand on a decent pinch on the arete at around 6 feet and the right hand on one of the underclings located in the center of the face. Establish on the wall with some difficulty and piece together a way to to the top.

A short, but very fun problem on perfect rock and arguably the best line on the boulder.


This is located to the right of 'Gutshot' and to the left of 'Moneyshot'. It shares the arete with 'Gutshot', but climbs the right side of the arete instead of the left.

I'm sure this has been climbed before, so I'm not going to make any claim to a first ascent, despite the fact that it isn't listed in any of the three guides to Joe's Valley. I gave it a name that stuck with the 'shot' theme because I figured that would be better than calling it 'unnamed'. However, if anyone has another name for it, please let me know!

It's a really fun line and worth getting on in if you're in the area. The grade is just a suggestion. It could be easier. It could be harder. It suits me very well, so it's hard to say. Definitely chime in with your opinion when you climb it! May 15, 2016
