Sharks Tooth, 5.10

3rd Pitch- 85’- 5.10/ Start in some dirty off width and try to avoid getting dirt on the bottom of your shoes because you need to smear on the face as the crack narrows. Place large gear at first, up to 4” and then follow a nicely varnished crack (the inside of the crack is decent rock) up placing smaller pieces. I used a .5” where it fit like a glove in one particular spot and also used a good .3” and .4” above it I believe. Pass one bolt as the ground eases for the last couple meters and lands you on a decent belay ledge with fixed chains. (photo)
