Probably 5.4c, but a good easy and well protected approach pitch to the other climbs on this formation.


This route starts on the far left end of the dome and is used as the approach pitch to the other routes. Look for bolts starting at the north toe of the formation that lead up and right.


Bolts to various anchors.

Shipley Drive is an homage to Walt Shipley and a take off on the Tuolumne routes Rawl Drive and Truck'in Drive. We used to call that moment when Walt looked like he was ready to vibrate off something and then start pimping out the moves, regardless of fall hazard, Shipley Drive.
