So, how does the 12a version go? I initially tried traversing from the pillar on the left with my hands in pockets at the 2nd bolt (there are 8 or 9 bolts on the route now). Moving up here was desperate, and felt way harder than 12a (harder than the cruxes of several 12+ Gym routes I tried the day before). I finally ended up climbing to the top of the pillar and traversing in with hands in pockets near the 3rd bolt, which felt reasonable, though reachy.
This route, along with all the others on 2150 wall, are VERY sharp (great routes though!), and should probably be avoided on your second day "on" at Shelf.
