This is the best route I have done so far at Parowan Gap. Really aesthetic line that runs up to the base of pillar on the left side of Shinobe. Pull through a slight overhang, then through several bolts on easier ground until you reach the crux which is a steep section of trusting small cobblestones! I did release one here and caught it before it fell on my partner below. Takes a little nerve to lead this one I must say. If you can climb 5.12 on suspect rock, keep following the pillar up. There are 11 bolts to the anchors, not 10 as the guidebook suggests. You cannot see the anchors until through the last bolt or two.

Descent Options:

60m rope
