The "A" formation
Low-angles face climbing following a thin crack-seam for protection. At the top of the seam, the route squeezes through a small chimney-like section to gain the summit ridge.
Holds are mostly solid, but there is a lot of lichen on the route.
Variation: Using the 3/8" bolts as a top-rope anchor, climb directly up to the anchor. ~5.7.
Near the west end of the Shady Side, two crack systems run together forming a giant "A". "B"-route is the right hand crack. The left hand crack is A - Route
Small gear for the first 30 ft seam. There are only a few spots on the seam with good placements. Build an anchor at the top with small wires and cams. For the descent, a pair of 3/8" bolts can be found by lowering down 10 ft and traversing around the corner to the right.
