4 out of 5 stars Dumb Idea

I probably shouldn't have soloed this route, but felt cocky after soloing pro-sweat. I wasn't screwed and about to die or anything, it just made me more uncomfortable than I would have liked.

5 out of 5 stars Great climbing!

Wanted to check this climb out, being one of the easier on the Shield, but only has one bolt to the double bolt mid anchor. Looked at it and decided I could try it. 20ft of 5.6 to the overlap and a good couple equalized cams. Then 15ft of 5.8 to the bolt on good holds. Then the great crystalline crux above the bolt for another 15ft, leading to better holds and the anchor. Climb does continue at an easier grade to top, but no rap anchor.
