Description 

This route is described in the green Bob D. book as being 'better than it looks', and this is a true statement.

Begin up a funky, soapy, blue/grey/yellow limestone flake that is somewhat out of character for Shelf road. Be careful with the top of the flake as you clip the second bolt. From here, the character of the route changes drastically with steep, black, blocky limestone, transitioning to a slabby mantle and the anchors. It is a really fun route.

Location 

It is towards the far left side of the wall. From where the trail meets the wall, hike left to the third major panel with routes. This route is immediately to the right of a big, free standing tower that is separated from the main rock by a narrow chimney/gully.

Protection 

5 bolts and anchors. The anchors are hard to see from below as they are up over the bulge.
