The bottom portion of the east face is actually an arch! Reportedly one can climb the first pitch from UNDERNEATH and then regain the surface for P2.

Climber starting up P2. We easily combined P1 & P2; didn't clip the single pin on easy P1 to reduce rope drag.

Comments: I (nervously) enjoyed this climb, but it isn't as safe as most of the other routes in the area. Solid 5.10 leaders will have no problem; new or shaky ones may. There is serious deck potential on a ledge down low, and at the top it is very runout to the anchor on nontrivial terrain.

Comments: A 60m rope works but just barely. Be careful and make sure you belay from the little nook ABOVE the trail, not the trail itself. We had just a few inches to spare when the climber stood on top of the boulder at the start of the route.

About halfway up there is cool hand jamming through a roof to gain the actual crack. Didn't seem easy for a Turkey Rock 5.8, right on par I thought.

Comments: Don't let the large spacing between bolts scrare you away; this climb is well bolted. It's the easiest route at the crag and would be a good quick warmup for some of the harder 9s.

Comments: Maybe it's 10b if you do some sort of average. The crux definitely felt tougher than that, but it's well bolted and perfect for someone breaking into harder 10s.

Comments: According to the Haas S. Platte book, this is Crystal Corner (5.9). The few cruxy slab moves down low felt 5.9 to me.

Comments: Runout between 2nd & 3rd bolts might not have been the best idea. Easy climbing, yes, but crappy rock there, and if something blows, there is groundfall potential. Fun moves on better rock up high, but it seemed a little thin compared to other 8s at Shelf.

Comments: I don't understand why there is so much ado about rapping from this thing. The new SPlatte guidebook says the easiest way is a double rope rap down the east face. I have no idea why you'd haul an extra rope up for that, since like Sergio says: You can easily rap down the west side and reach the ground with a 60 meter rope, nothing tricky about it. The anchor on the summit is clearly set up for doing this. No need for double ropes or multiple raps.

Comments: There is a scary chockstone about 2/3 of the way up the chimney that moves and looks quite precarious. Don't yard on it! Its easy to stem over.

Comments: I think the roof is height dependent. I (5'6") was perplexed for a bit and the trick was dynoing for a key hold my taller partner could reach from the deck. I tried everything I could to work up and reach it statically and I just couldn't. Once I had that hold pulling the roof was a piece of cake. This roof felt harder to me than the one to the right on Man in the Yellow Hat (5.10a). Good bolting at the crux though so this shouldn't stop shorter leaders.

Comments: Short but fun climb with a lot of variety. Very well bolted and a great climb for newer leaders trying to push the grade.

Comments: I didn't think the traverse was contived at all. When I did the climb, the obvious hand ledge traverse seemed like the natural way to go. Fun, thoughtful, & well protected, it makes the climb. The rest is way easier. If you're going to skip the traverse, then don't bother doing the climb.
