BETA PHOTO: first bolt of Toxic Shock (5.11d)
2013 Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The bouldery crux is before the first bolt so stick clip it if you have any sense. There's a great jug above the bolt but don't get too comfy until you're standing on the ledge. After that it's 5.9 the rest of the way for 3 more bolts

The bouldery start is harder on taller folk and is probably V3 or V4ish


Location 

The start is under a cave toward the right of the wall. Right of The Snag and left of The Carnivore


Protection 

4 bolts and 2 anchors

Tough crux but it's short lived. Felt more like 11b or c to me.

Short but fun crux!
