First roof....


This is a clean line up impressive and intimidating buttress between Jelly Bellies and Dough Boys . It pulls several small roofs on thin holds. It is strenuous for the grade.


Bolts to cold shuts with a runout on hard moves to the anchor, but the fall is clean.

Added one bolt on the trip to the anchors. Route is more enjoyable for the typical shelf climber without the runnout.

This route is 10 bolts long including sharing 2 bolts with the route which veers off right.

11d for the OS - once the line is known maybe 11c for the RP. Good line.

This route is nowhere near three stars. Contrived line to CHIPPED holds. Compared to partners or apple, this is a bomb. Sorry man, but I couldn't recommend this climb to anyone.

This climb was thought provoking, long (for Shelf) and super fun. Fairly committing moves on small holds and over two roofs. The exposure on the arÍte is well worth it. Highly recommended.
