The route starts on the obvious lip at about eye level when you approach the Shark. Carefully work your way to the right using small feet. It may be necessary to pop a heel hook up there to reach the first holds. Obvious chalk marks follow the route up the right of the shark; continue up the arete until you reach the top. Once you top out, carefully climb down the back of the shark.


A crashpad is definitely required, and a few good spotters at the topout does become a bit precarious.
