Easy climbing to the first bolt, then crimp your way through the sharp arete to a ledge with the first set of anchors.

The Kelley guide has Shrimp listed as 11b and the route continues on bolts out left through the steep face. I don't think the second part gets done often.


Right side of Amphitheater left of "Single Handed Sailor".


4 bolts to the first set of anchors. Kelley Guide lists 10 total bolts to the second anchors.

Its .11b. The upper part has nice new bolts and is actually good climbing. Don't bail low.
