The Shield.


Start down to the left on the corner of the turret. Move right using juggy, flake holds. The ledge is off, only use feet on wall. There is a small, tough move in the middle with two small 45* crimps by the bottom left side of the smooth "Shield." Next with left foot on the discolored corner piece of the block in the puddle(rest of block is off route), get a high foot on the small ledge under the right wing of the bird, and mantle up with right hand on the right side of the blocky hold by the right wing of the purple bird and left hand on top of the blocky hold to the left of the purple bird. Lift until both feet are in the two pocket footholds under the purple bird, then work up the thick crack to the right of the smooth face top out over the wall. This is to the right of the poorly done swastika (if anyone has the right material PLEASE remove/cover this).


Scramble over the rock and move to the far corner. Go down a small gully, and the climb will be on your right. There will be a deep crevice behind you. The start is down and around by the far left corner.


Use a crashpad under the right side of the smooth face, just outside of the puddle.
