This climb is on the Short Wall, which is just to the East and a little South from Plumb Line. It is short, but offers excellent thin-hand jams to a wild, overhanging finish where you need the #4 Camalot. The last few moves are the crux.

Per Brian Weinstein: A pretty corner that starts at fingers and thin hands until you encounter the roof. Pulling the roof is the crux.

Eds. This route was submitted twice into the database. The information is combined here under the original submission.


2 #0.75 Camalots, 1 #1 Camalot, 1 #2 Camalot, 1 #4 Camalot. There are bolts at the top and it would also be easy to scramble up and set up a TR.

Per Brian Weinstein: Finger-size (yellow TCU, etc.) to #4 Camalot for the roof.


Per Brian Weinstein: This is the middle of the three routes on the lower tier...a distinct corner.

Great route and a must if you are in the area. Unlike its neighbors, there are bolts at the top but no rap rings, so you will still need to walk off.

Super classic, full on rounded edge lieback to crux flop to the top. The corner that makes up the first part of the pitch is CLASSIC!

Beware that the bolts on top of Misfits and Shogun are not intended to have a rope ran directly through them.
