Description 

Be very careful. Some of the rock is very thin, but is trustable. You'll understand the name cold shut when you feel the air coming out of the crack. The hardest move is getting up over the overhang at the top of the cliff. You can go up on either side of it, but the real challenge comes going directly over it, as it has very small if any handholds.

Location 

Follow the cliffline for about 10 yards where it recesses back into a small chimney. On the right is a small crack. You're going to pretty much be straddling the crack when you climb this route, until after the first two or three moves.

Protection 

There are trees at the top to slingshot top rope from. Foliage at the top prevents direct top roping.
