Tina nearing the roof crux on the FA.


Follow gently overhanging jugs up to the final roof crux. Pull up and right over the roof to good clipping holds above the anchors.


After reaching the Far Side cliff proper, walk 5 minutes along the base past Sympathy For the Devil and before Well Hung. Hume's Horror sits in an alcove formed by two slightly overhanging, pocketed, red and yellow walls. With your back to the route, you would be staring directly at the west face of Menses Prow.


5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with chains.

First bolt is so low there's no point in clipping it. The crux is not z-clipping the anchor ;)

This might get the award for the most shoe rubber and chalk on any climb at Shelf. Fun (almost brainless) climbing up jugs the entire way. Don't think it's 10b. Several 9s at Shelf are significantly harder.
