This was a fun route, for my partner. I left a lot of blood on this one when I created a spurting tip by grabbing a hold to quickly. It is on the arete right of Suburbia on Contest Wall. It has sequential and balancy climbing (Van Horn's words hold very true here). Watch out for sharp holds near the top (and near the top of many Shelf routes as they slab out).


5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Nice one to do before jumping on Suburbia--which is right next to it. Pretty pumpy, little route! At the top, best to high step over the bulge, Watch out--pulling on some pretty sharp limestone.

Huh... this one drew my blood as well! Nice little gusher, but I tried to keep it off the rock. The crux is interesting--look wide for holds....

A hard move and a haul to get to the 5th bolt only to find that the hanger spins like a wheel... yikes!

Nice route, but felt damn hard for the grade compared to other 11- climbs I've done at Shelf.

Hard for the grade but exceptionally good.
