Description 

With nearly perfect rock, good gear, and enormous jugs, this route epitomizes the Shortoff experience and should not be missed!

This is a combination variation start to "Going for Baroque" and the regular finish of a different line (same route with the lone bolt just left of the initial crack).

Climb the main crack feature just right of a lone bolt about 25' up and just left of the regular Going for Baroque start. Move past a fixed stopper to a ledge and rest before moving out left under the steep wall. The first couple of pieces are good but a little strenuous to place (crux). Climb the steep wall on amazing holds to the top. Build anchor and bring partner up or lower.

Location 

Start on Going for Baroque.

Protection 

Set of stoppers and cams from blue tcu to #4 camelot. Double on hand-sized pieces.
