Climb to a horizontal, place some gear and get on a nice face to a bolt. Getting past the bolt requires good foot work and side pulls to get to a very short finger crack. Crank threw to a nice horizontal and enjoy fun face climbing to the top using horizontals for pro. Shares same anchors as the Lowe Route.


Between the Lowe Route and The Sheild.


Doubles in the small stuff, 1 bolt plus anchors. There is a spot for a #2bd, dont bring anything bigger.

More straight forward than the sheild and a little soft (at least for me).

I felt like this was a bit harder than the shield. Maybe taller people do better? Intricate footwork and balancy moves define the crux. Great line.
