Description 

Shares start with the 5.11c that is the leftmost route on this wall. Follows bolts to the right from the start, up through a small roof and then following a seam. Sequential and hard to read. Really good climbing. Crux is passing the roof on a really crappy sidepull with less than inspiring feet. The upper bit past the roof climbs like a dream, interesting moves with intricate feet.
