Looking down from above the crux.


This is a chimney/off-width climb that starts out low-angle and easy then gets narrower and vertical to overhanging.

If anyone has information on the FA, please let me know!


This is between "Shark Attack" and "Major Bolt Achievement". You can use the rap anchors for "Feeding Frenzy"/"Shark Attack" for descent.


You can clip one or two bolts down low (part of "Major Bolt Achievement", then start plugging gear. Bring cams up to C4 size 6 for the offwidth crux.

Per evan h: there are now two new bolt anchors as of June, 2015.

This climb takes multiple #1 and #2 Camalots. It looks wide, but the crack is smaller in the back. You can use the bolts on Major Bolt Achievement for descent.

There is now a 2-bolt anchor on top of Shark Infested Waters, which will be more convenient (and safer) than traversing to the Feeding Frenzy anchors. Or just use the Major Bolt Achievement anchors, which may be a better choice for this route.
