Well protected 5.9 climb. moderate 5.7 climbing through the first 4 bolts and then a real thinker 5.9 crux move at the 5th. if you're short this might be a show stopper and if you're tall this climb will feel more like 5.7. either way it's a great climb for breaking into the grade.


This route is on the blank face to the left of Humpbacks in Love. It starts in the gulley/chimney between sharks fin and shipyard rock. Take the gulley up until a large flake, traverse right behind the flake. from here you can see the mid way anchors on humpbacks in love. look for a bolted line up the face, this is the route.


5 bolts protect the climb, but you could bring a small rack to protect the moves to the first bolt.
