One of the best lines I did at the crag. Fun and pleasant, mostly solid and gymnastic. I think I must have pulled 5 heel hooks around the corners.
This line is at the left side of the right-most feature of Snowshed Wall. This is in the shade in the attached photo, just left of the square face of that hold the obvious O.W. named 'Hairshirt.'
Climb up on solid rock on a crack (not too hard) to an engaging face- flag, stem, and hook your way up past multiple cruxes to reach the anchor. Very fun, and mostly good holds and good rests. Height may be a factor, as I found most of the critical holds just within my reach without much strain. Some one 5'6" or below will have to work harder.
A few small TCU's to 5 or 6 bolts, to a bolt and chain anchor.

Hey AC, don't be an AC with comments like that! A typo doesn't merit it! And we all know guides have errors too so they are not definitive references... i.e.: see Palsy...

Reserve a couple of thin nuts for the top if you want to do the original pumper S.G. finish (staying on the left side). The thin nut at the top will keep you out of the tree.
Finishing on the right side is the most common variation, but is not the "full value".

Wow! one of the best mixed routes at Donner Summit! Another route not to miss! Its much funner if you stay to the left of the arete.
