DescriptionMineshaft follows an ever steepening obtuse dehidral with great movement the whole way. Stemming turns weird as you head out right under the dihedral as it steepens into a roof. Tricky right arm stemming and opposition moves are required to exit the roof. Your ability to think in 3D with dictate how long you spend in the roof. Get creative!
After the first roof, there is a good rest followed by a second roof out right. Going left looks easier, but is harder and risks a ledge fall. Go right, straight above your bolt. Stem and a massive jug awaits you above the roof. The route finishes with 40' of moderate climbing.
If you pay attention to the bolt line, and extend certain clips appropriately (12" draws on some, and 24" slings on others), the rope will run nearly perfectly straight with no rope drag. I haven't tested clipping them all with standard draws, but I imagine it would be a nightmare.
