Thad N. on the first ascent of Shroud of Turin 5.1...

Description 

Either start on Tunnel vision or hike up onto the ledge. Follow the bolts over the big hole. Getting your feet over the gaping hole is the crux. A great balance problem. If you avoid using the crack on Tunnel vision down low the climbing moves are more funner, also if you avoid traversing around the gaping hole the moves are more funner, or you could follow everyone else and opt for the 5.8 version. Also a nice photo op.

Location 

3rd bolted route from the left. Either start on Tunnel vision or hike up onto the ledge. Left most bolted route on the ledge. see topo

Protection 

5 bolts.
