This is a vastly sandbagged climb at Shelf! It is three climbs in one with three cruxes. Do a boulder problem start. There is a difficult mid-way sequence with possible ledge out and a final roof problem.
It is at the far North end of the Contest Wall (west side of Sand Gulch).

This is a great route, but the 'hangers' are down-right scary. They almost look like hand cut sheet metal (not like other angle iron hangers in the area) bent 90 degrees with a hole drilled in them with no markings or ratings.
In addition, the third bolt at the end of a large runout that protects the crux moves will flex with a light bouncing from a static hang under my weight of only 140 lbs.
Nice route, but be careful.
