Bruce working Early Bird.
Another great moderate 10 on the far right side of Cactus Cliff. Unusual for Shelf with a flared slot halfway up. Varied, interesting climbing.
Start 8' left of Six More Bottles of Basco at a short right-facing flake/corner leading to a flared slot about 40' up. This is 10' right of Fully Equipped, a prominent flared chimney leading to a big roof.
Climb the flake and face to the flared slot. Struggle up the slot and work up to a roof. Turn the roof (crux) and continue up to a final steep bulge. Step left and jam a short hand crack to the anchor.
9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Fun and well bolted, but harder than any 10b at Shelf that I can think of, and harder than most 10a's.
