A good route for those who like to crimp. Begin the climb atop a pedestal behind a large tree. The climb is on a clean face just right of a large corner. Power up, slighlty right, and then straight up past 10 bolts. One can move about 10 feet right at the last bolt to finish on easier ground, making the route 12b, but why?

Loved it. One hung onsight attempt. Red point second attempt. Possibly best route I've done at Shelf to date.

This was my first 12c onsight, so I'm tempted to say 12b. I'll take the grade though, and I think my friends are getting sick of me downgrading stuff that I do well on.

A classic crimp fest with some pockets for variety. Easy to onsight if you keep punching to the rests. very fun.
