This route climbs into, out of and back into the prominent right facing dihedral on The Shark.

Pitch 1 - grovel up a wide crack using a belly crawl, if necessary(5.6). Enter and continue up
the dihedral for a short way and belay.

Pitch 2 - continue up the dihedral to a fixed pin. Traverse out and right(crux) onto the face and up to a bolt which seems oh, so far away. Head straight up to the dihedral and belay.

Pitch 3 - continue up the dihedral(5.8 hands) until it is advisable to traverse right(bolt). Continue up to a two-bolt belay that is shared with Corn Hole and Bushes and Buckets.


This route is located at the low point of the dome a bit right of the large arch. Rappel Bushes and Buckets with double ropes.


Bring a standard rack with a few extra hand-sized pieces. A large cam is nice for pitch 1, but not necessary.
