Ten Minute Shift, 5.11b

1st Pitch- 80’- 5.10b/ After a slight bushwhack and loose start (placing a single piece of pro) follow the bolts up through fun edges and side pulls. Twice when I have climbed this pitch, once on lead, once on second, I was drawn a bit far right following nice feet and ended up having to down climb a move or two. Instead, stay directly below the bolts or if anything stay left and use the corner with your left hand to advance. At the top is a hand rail below a block, use this to mantel up to the fixed belay ledge. You can go up a ramp out left, but this last move is more in line with the grade and intent of the line no doubt.
