Start with an easy climbing to a ledge positioned underneath the slightly-overhanging, outside corner (climber's right). Pull some slopers and pockets on your right, and a few crimpers on your left, as you straddle the corner. Reach for the upper crack on the front face, and "hop" your body to reach the juggy ledge. Finish with a fun jug-haul to the top.


This is the rightmost route on The Shield. Look for the slightly-overhanging, outside corner. The line runs parallel to the maple tree growing in front of the face. A toprope fall from the crux will swing you away from the face and into this maple tree.


A toprope.
