Chuana Chavaria ascends a mossy water-streak, and so is rather dirty by Shelf standards. There are quite a few enjoyable sections, but the inconsistent nature of the climbing combined with somewhat dirty rock detract from the experience. Begin behind an ornery thorn bush, with easy moves between the large flake & the main cliff. Things get serious at the ledge, with a nice introductory boulder problem on great water-sculpted pockets. Crimps appear where the pockets thin out, leading to a subtle scoop below a bulge. Exit the scoop by moving either right or left, to a crux encounter turning the lip of the slight bulge. Once established above the bulge, one more hidden bolt and a few easy moves lead to the anchor.


The furthest left route in the mossy pit that is the Shelf Refrigerator. Or, the next route right of "Tower of Power".


Bolts to 2 bolt anchor. High first bolt. Stick Clip highly recommended!
