Description 

This is located on Menses Prow, immediately left of No Passion for Fashion. Only given 2 stars in Van Horn's guide, this route is easily as good as numerous other 3 star routes at Shelf. It has very fun, movement oriented climbing...a welcome change from the sharp, thin pockets that characterize routes of this grade at Shelf. The first half of the route tackles the bouldery shallow dihedral and arete (crux moving past 3rd bolt). The rest of the route is low-mid 5.11.


Protection 

9 or 10 bolts and chain anchors.

The bolts on this could use some love. Many of the nuts are lose, so you may want to bring a wrench. Excellent, sustained crimping!

Monomaniac is correct. The bolts on this one need some love, especially some of the ancient hangers.

This thing has sweet, really cool movement (arete and dihedral in one)with just enough small sharp hold to remind you you're at Shelf.
