A key pocket on "Shark Attack."

Description 

Begin in the middle of the wall below an overhang. Step up to catch under clings in excellent smooth pockets and feet on the reddish undercut section. Work the hands up to the horizontal groove/break and crank up to sharp honeycomb features. Lock off and reach up and right for an awesome symmetrical pocket on the prow above the overhang. Throw for the lip and mantle onto the flat shelf at the top.

Location 

Middle of the Dave Jones Locker Wall, at the undercut with red rock capped with and overhang.

Protection 

Pad/spotter....as there are some clusters of sharp rock below the top out.

In the event of a shark attack conventional wisdom is to stick your fingers into the shark's eye. Near the top of this problem there is an impressive symmetrical finger pocket that begs to be utilized in a moment of panic.
