Comments: I thought this was a really good addition for the area. It is fairly long, the climbing is really fun, and it is well-protected.

Comments: The climbing on the lower section is great, but the upper part kind of deteriorates into weird sharp/slippery/crumbly/bubbly techno-piss climbing. I thought the top was pretty desperate.

Comments: Didn't really think this route was that great. Not the best quality rock, lower crux is kind of poorly protected (seemed like a good opportunity to pummel your belayer if you come off), the anchor is crappy, and the climbing is just so-so.

Comments: i thought this route was just kind of ok. the first 1/3 is easy scrambling. the crux is pulling on overhanging loose blocks, with pro in the aforementioned blocks, directly above a ledge. you definitely do not want things to go bad here, or they would go really bad. i definitely would not recommend this to somebody who doesn't have some desert climbing experience.

the section above this is fun off fist and OW, but kind of short.

Comments: A Shelf classic, and for good reason. This route has it all - funky cobble geodes, sweet pockets, techy face, steep headwall. Way fun.

Comments: great route. bloom's guide says the grade is extremely hand sized dependent, but i don't really agree. it has everything from tight fingers to biggish hands - everybody will have a good size, and everybody will have a bad size.

really small gear (black, blue alien) to get to the bolt, a few each from tight fingers to off fingers, and fairly heavy on #1 and #2 camalots up at the top.

super fun!

Comments: One of the all time classic 12a's at Shelf, and for good reason. No brutal show stopper moves on it but a lot of climbing at a fairly difficult grade. Top that off with a heartbreaking redpoint crux at the top, and you get one hell of a route.

Comments: Burly start, somewhat remniscent of Little Mecca, but it takes a bit longer to get to any sort of hold you can really shake out on. The upper section is really good also with some nice crisp pockets.

Comments: Excellent route, slightly easier than Spontaneous Combustion (both the lower crux climbing as well as the slab climbing above). I can't believe this route wasn't put up until 2004. Totally blows my mind that such an awesome line hid in plain view for nearly 20 years.

Comments: One of the key things for an epoxy/glue job is that the surfaces need to be clean. I think it would be pretty tough to get inside the crack and get it well cleaned(?).

Comments: Superb route. Fun boulder problem at the start can be done a bunch of ways, just have to figure out the best way for the individual. The climbing above that is kind of tough - tricky feet. Top section is pretty intense. This would be a proud onsight, as you can't really see what's coming at you during some of the harder climbing.

Comments: The "just believe" beta is pretty accurate for the lower crux. My partner gave me super key beta here - I wasn't thinking in that direction, and I would have never figured it out. Even then, it is a hard move for sure. If you are short, it will be a long reach. If you are tall, the foot positions are kind of awkward. It would be nice to set this as a problem in your garage so you could do it a few times and get it smoothed out.

I think the top runout borders on inappropriate for a rap bolt... more >>
