Most of the routes at Shelf that climb black stone have few features, and the few they have are small and slopey. This line is a bit of an exception, offering some great incut pockets and positive edges. Big holds through the low bulge make this a great warm-up option, but be prepared for some old-school bolting.
Begin atop a pedestal and make a few easy moves to reach a slight bulge. A few big cranks and a slight runout lead to a good stance at a horizontal break. More good pockets clear the last vertical bit, then follow an intermittent seam up the final slab.
About 30 yards right of The Example
, this is the third route from the right on a wide black slab.
4 bolts to 2-bolt open coldshut anchor shared with Five Dollars
. The bolts on this are well-spaced, but all of the cruxes are protected. Take care on the easy sections.
