Description 

This is a good, 200m line up the right side of McHenry's Peak's Shameless Tower. Scramble up white slabs to a start in a major crease some 50m right of the Kidnapper Van.

1. 5.7 cracks and slabs 60m.

2. Nice, L.-facing corner 5.7 to a belay on the highest ledge, 40m.

3. From the far left side of the ledge, gain the major, L.-facing corner with double cracks, steeper 5.9, 50m.

4. Continue this double crack, thin to start then past a necky section stepping right around stacked blocks. This rates an R otherwise the route's silver plume granite is excellent. Finish the sustained pitch up a clean shield with zig zag cracks and sneak around right into a final, R.-facing cleft, and the summit ridge, 50m, 5.10a.

Walk down the ridge north and do the standard Arrowhead raps.
