VI 5.7 A3+

Takes the slimmer headwall parallel and to the left of "The Shield", catching the last evening light. Slightly harder and much less frequented than that route. Very clean, solid and no bad falls. The headwall and first couple of pitches on "Son of Heart", especially the "All-time Aid Crack", are superb.
