"Climb a broken crack system to anchors beneath a bulge. A decent, albeit short, route."

-from Fred Knapp's 'Shelf Road Rock'.


This is about halfway down the Far Side (as you walk Westward). This is probably the shortest route you'll find, as well as one of the easiest at the Far Side.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Didn't see any bolts on this one - did my eyes deceive me?
