15 feet right of Levels of the Game. Climbs to the right of a large obvious flake/arete in an acute dihedral. Starts up loose crumbly red rock. Squeeze through an awkward section past the first 2 bolts and stem up the large dihedral above. Follow the bolts out onto the right sided face of the upper arete. The Knapp guidebook says 5.11c which could make this the softest route at Shelf.

4 out of 5 stars Not 5.11c

There is no way this if 5.11c. If I try real hard I can imagina 5.11a. I think 5.10c is more accurate. The climb is wonderful though with a lot of thoughtful movement.

3 out of 5 stars tick

A fun route except for the extremely loose stuff at the start. Not .11c as the Knapp guidebook rates it.
