Right-facing corner on the far left side of The Shield. Good crack climbing in a corner on good rock, one of the best moderates around.


Route is on the far left side of The Shield. Start on the slab then quickly move into the corner. Anchor is at the chockstone.


Single set cams to #3, stoppers. Anchors are on the chockstone, bring slings to replace as the crack is home to some rather large rats.
