3 out of 5 stars Sheltering Sky

Not quite the 5 star climb I was expecting. The route follows a somewhat inobvious line, rather than attack a line of weakness such as a ramp system or waterstreak. There's nothing really to make this line stand out from the climbing 10 feet to the right or left. And this knobby shit just plain hurts. Hurts the fingers, hurts the feet - a hanging belay never looked so comfy. The last two pitches were more enjoyable because they're easier and less painful. It gets a star for good rock, a star for good pro, and a star for good exposure.
