Hot and muggy day? Tired of the scene down at Cracked Wall? Up for a little leading? Well, then, head for Shadow Rock. Sunny sometimes, but, as the name suggests, shady many others. Watch out when climbing around noon, the sun will get in your eyes. It's slab central, but you'll find plenty of interesting moves to keep your wits about you.
From the main road, head all the way up until you start heading into the wood. Follow the climber trail that forks left. You should go along the meadow, ignore the first turn off, go into some high brush and into some trees and take the trail left. This approach is milder than P Wall, and you should be able to see the wall not too far off the original climber trail.

This route has a mixture of old bolting ethics and those from Owen's River Gorge. This means the first bolt is about 20 ft off the deck but the ones following are almost on top of eachother. That said, it is still a classic, good enough to be placed on Hans Flourine's top six routes below 5.12! It starts on the left side of the block in the middle of the wall and goes up until you are just below and left of the first bolt. Traverse right, clip the bolt and then follow the bolt line up to the anc...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
