Rob on The Shining 5.8+ at Lady Slipper- Emerald C...
South facing, tall and variable rock quality characterize this wall. There is a nice snapshot of RRG climbing here, from 5.10-11 vertical slab sport to short moderate trad, to multi-pitch trad. Not a lot of any one type of climbing, but a good selection of each.
Follow the trail up to a split at a large boulder. Hike left and up the hill for Emerald City and right along a bench to the bouldering area and Global Village.

For all of you who like these sub-vertical, edgy face routes, be sure to check out Rodeo Wall if you're ever in Jackson, WY. Very similar climbs.
