A direct start to the Shark Attack corner was bolted by Steve Carr in 1998 but after a few attempts Steve bequeathed it to the masses. Al Mark claimed a first ascent by clipping the first bolt, moving right 2m and up, avoiding the crux before joining the second bolt and the rest of the route. Travelling light he then led the rest of Shark attack on 3 pieces of gear. Mike Simpson climbed directly up the route up the line of the bolts the following week, 1999.
