Jean Aschenbrenner by the fifth bolt on this beaut...
This is in the center of the leftmost wall on Spiney. The climb follows a noticable crack line up the main face. With good holds and footing all the way, the route is a good alternative to Cactus climbs like LaCholla Jackson.
7 bolts to anchors.

A beautiful and esthetic line; one of the best of its grade at Shelf.

Very nicely bolted for a newish 5.8+ leader.

Was on this route 10-10-05. I was cleaning the route on the way down and the fourth bolt hanger came off in my hands. This is valuable pro, as it protects the crux. Jennifer, my belayer, saw the washer and nut fall as I passed the bolt on lead but thought they were pebbles. Nut, washer and hanger are now resting on a small but prominent ledge at the base of the climb (I didn't have a wrench). If you're headed to this area, please bring a wrench and reattach the hanger. This is a very sweet route at the grade. Cheers.Eddy

Good climb...Looks like the 2nd bolt is missing to prevent rope drag....IMO chop all the damn bolts and make it a trad climb like is should be!!

Maybe I'm just a sport-junkie, but can you safely place gear in Shelf Road's friable limestone? Hmm, maybe that's why the first ascensionist decided to bolt this line. Great line.

A solid climb. It feels right on for 8+. The 2nd bolt is still missing as of 3/24/2010 but you can place a pink or red tri-cam in a pocket and sling extend it for pro. Yes, I would trust trad gear on this route on Shelf's limestone.

Just there 9/4/2011, the second bolt is still missing. We swung over from Cheers (since we already were set up on TR for that at the same time) to clip in at the third bolt, since it was a bit runout to go from first to third. A more confident leader would probably skip this, though, since the route isn't all that difficult at that point.

Just climbed this on 01/14/2012. The hanger on the second bolt is missing, making it a bit sketchy for 5.8 leaders. As for the rope drag issue, a long draw will solve it. I'll come with a hanger next time I'm there in case someone doesn't beat me to it. Fun warm-up for sure.

I don't think there ever should have been that second bolt, unless you're into z-clipping. A good 5.8 though, not gimme.

As of 4/7/12, the hanger on the 2nd bolt is still missing but, in my mind, is completely unnecessary. You can clip the 3rd bolt once you are standing on the prominent ledge where the 2nd bolt in located. Great climb. Felt more like 9- to me but was at the end of a long day, so I was probably just tired.

Second bolt is still missing, but it is not needed at all. Not remotely scary or dangerous.
