The Wetter The Better! 

Even things that are short can have huge bursts of power. This little hummer has everything that you could possibly want in a pumpy/techical, power-fest of a route. It even has a happy ending.

This climb starts out with hard, overhung moves that keep you on your toes and make your congnitive senses go into overdrive. From there it never really seems to let up. Definately an endurofest!

Stroke those hidden holds, beat your meat, and when your hands get tired, use your feet. Be ready to work this thing. Don't be too suprised if you go limp about halfway through.

Way hard! Way fun. This is a cool, New Skool route with forearm killing moves up finger-banging pockets and crimps. Get ready for a groin pulling, exhaustingly-good time right up until the gooey finish.


Location: Flagship Wall. Find it, whip it out, and feel the pump in your face! 

Way easy to locate! Park at the Shadowlands parking lot and hike across the road to and hike a short distance to an obvious boulder with chalk marks on its overhanging face. Walk past the boulder and make your way towards the obvious blonde face that is behind it and slightly to the right-hand side of the canyon.

Glacial Facial is the left most climb on this blonde wall. For those of you who are short on time, but still want to rub one out quick, this route is car climbing at its finest!


Protection 

8 bolts. Open Anchors.
