Route starts just to the right of the large "cleft" that splits the Toe at the base.  The first pitch generally traverses left through quality changing rock and is bolted for the mini cruxes with belay bolts at 180 ft.  Second pitch is the best and after the step down move off the left facing dihedral begin an open face that keeps most lead climbers awake for the grade.   The top of this face comes close to the line for Cactus Kiss but continues up a short wall using a flake then joins the last few bolts of Cactus Kiss finishing at the rappel chains.  If not continuing on to West Tier climbs, the route rappel is down Cactus Kiss (3 raps with a single 200 rope and last rappel to the left up the trail)  There are no rappel chains on Shiver and if you attempt it you will be retiring your rope to the cactus gods.
