Great route, steeper than your normal Shelf route. The start is the crux with some 11+ish moves up higher.

Stellar route and in the shade from the morning till mid-late afternoon. There is a low crux between the 1st to 3rd bolts, then fun juggy climbing up till two other distinct cruxes. All around an excellent route and a new personal favorite at Shelf.

This was a good route, and my personal opinion is this is a good route to break into 12s. The crux is definitely the start. The third bolt should not be clipped from the semi-slopey left hand, but it is safer to climb another one or two moves up toward the rest and then clip because less rope will be out for clipping and the holds are stellar.

Be thoroughly warmed up as the crux start requires you to pull hard. Comparable to its neighbor, Jewel of the Wild, maybe not as much pump though. I thought that it the start was pretty bouldery too compared to some other 12a's at Shelf. The top is a bit chossy but still cool finishing moves. Definitely worth getting on!
