Shylock! It sounds like the name of some medieval creature to me, but apparently the modern use of the word refers to someone with the qualities of a loan shark. It comes from Shakespeare's play, "The Merchant of Venice." It's Saxon root evidently means "white haired," and I think I may have sprouted one or two after leading this thing.

The climbing starts off with a few pods and tight tips, eventually becoming impossible. The plaque says .12+, and it felt damn hard to me. I would love to hear from the FAist, or anyone who has Houdini-ed this thing. The gear protecting the crux is the smallest possible, and the moves are very perplexing. After the crux there is a substantial but easy runout amongst some choss to the anchor. I replaced the ancient draws with two of my own. Good luck!

A couple of fingers pieces, with several options of tips down to the tiniest c3. A single set of .5 - 1 BD cams is also helpful.
