BETA PHOTO: Yeah, straight up.

Description 

Slightly contrived, but mainly for the fun factor. Solo straight up the face right of Shark Ride up to the first dish/pod, then continue straight using the arete for your right hand and whatever features for your left up to the big oak tree. Sling the tree then climb the short slightly overhung V0+ boulder problem behind the tree (the tree is off, haha) to the ledge on the pillar. Now head straight up the pillar (there are a few horizontal slots for good gear but through some slings on them to minimize drag) ending at the tower belay for "Shark Ride."

Finish on the Tower whichever way you want.

Location 

Just right of "Shark Ride" on the lower left flank of Wall 3

Protection 

Not much, a standard rack will suffice, but mainly just a few pieces from a #1 on down.
