'Shag' is located on the back side of the Fairview boulder. It is the problem that is farthest up the hill on the boulder. Start on a massive chalked hold (careful- it was a little loose when I tried it), and move up on good crimps to a mantle at the top. Fun moves on mostly good quality rock.


The landing is on a sloping hillside, so a crashpad is nice.

The problem you describe is Plush which is V7. Shag which is V3 ascends the short crack maybe 10 feet right of Plush from a low start.

AC, the description is enough to differentiate.

Shag, as I understand it, starts on the heavily chalked ledge at the farthest R uphill on this wall. The ground is experiencing quite a lot of erosion, but in the case of this problem, it actually enables it.

The start is ass dragging as it is, but reasonable at V3 with heal hooks, pulling up on crimps in the corner with a seam, and manteling onto the top.
