Description:

Start left of a huge dihedral, climb an easy face to a decent belay ledge. Second pitch is very fun and steep 5.5 to a huge ledge under the obvious roof. The third pitch pulls the large(for 5.6!) roof and continues past another bulge to the top. Very classic, and the third pitch is often combined with Strictly From Nowhere for a stouter outing.

5 out of 5 stars uber-classic.

pulling the roof on but P3 and P4 are...committing moves. tough 5.6, i'd say. great.

oh, and not to mention the naked party of three behind us. very attractive female accompanied, i think, by two others.

Easy face climbing to the top of the cliff. Interesting top out.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

We actually did Shockley's without. My second was not comfortable with the thought of blowing the roof.

5 out of 5 stars Super fun

What a great climb. Run P1/P2 together for a really nice long, super moderate approach to the alcove. Then build an anchor, bring up the second and finish the climb. Lot's of fun with huge jugs all the way up.
