Holding off the pump on Shere Khan.


This route is continuous and steep on good rock with barely adequate rests. It's a hard route to onsight for its grade--more than a few climbers have pumped off before reaching the anchors. Perhaps the best route to date in the Amphitheater.


This route starts at the far west end on the ledge above the Tick Farm. It shares the same start as Tiger by the Tail, which heads right.

Great movement with great rock quality. To me it is the route to do on the wall, although the 12a start is great too.
