Description 

Short route which follows the slightly overhung face below the shark's tooth. If you use the broken rock and arete on the right hand side, the variation is a 5.8 climb. Really a well bolted high ball problem.

Note: Be sure not to z-clip between bolts 1 and 2!

Protection 

2 bolts to rap ring anchors.

Location 

This is the 1st sport climb you encounter when entering Birdsboro Quarry's Main Wall section.
