Sharky's Machine is a top rope climb located on the west face of the Main Rock at Mickey's. As such, it can't be climbed if the tide is high. Top rope from the anchors of Hot Tuna and ascend the face directly below the anchors. There are lots of sidepulls that provide technical and fancy climbing. Then once you're about 8 feet below the anchors, the holds run out. We scooted left and finished on Hot Tuna, but since you're on top rope, give the direct finish a shot!


Climb Hot Tuna (11d/12a) and set up a top rope.

Really cool climb. I think this it's just as good as Hot Tuna and harder. Technical, sustained, power, and finesse to finish up on Hot Tuna.
