Shark Attack

Type: 
Rock
Description: 
Named for the shark fin hangers that were recycled from old snowstakes when retro bolted by Spoon who thought it was a new route. The first belay station is only there as a rap point (if you don't have 2 ropes) so truck on by on a nice long 50m pitch. Nick originally climbed the route on trad gear.
