Description 

Two Shaved Heads is located on the far right side of the cliff, past Meltdown, on a separated section of rock. The routes here are slightly less pumpy than those on the main part of the cliff, partly because they're shorter and partly because they're less steep.

Unlike many other routes at Shagg, Two Shaved Heads offers vertical, technical climbing. It is also much harder than it looks. After the steep, relatively easy start, the climbing becomes delicate and and culminates in some hard moves at the top. Expect to use your fingers more than your biceps on this one.


Protection 

5 bolts

The two finger pocket on this route is probably the only one at shagg!

Good to see that people still climb this route and it is still graded 5.12! (was 12b back in '96 when I sent it). Got it second try after got booted off It Ain't Pretty repeatedly. Definitely favors strong fingers over big biceps/shoulders :)

How in the world do you use the two-finger pocket on this route? A friend and I were completely stymied by it, and ended up moving right after the good crimp at the fourth bolt, like in the video. Curious about other beta!
