The Shadow of a Man boulder and the surrounding area is home to a ton of problems ranging from very easy to very hard.

Getting There 

From the Mollusk boulder, simply follow the trail until you reach the cliffline. The trail will fork to the left and to the right; the left fork leads to the Illuminati area, and the right fork leads to the Shadow of a Man boulder. Turn right and follow the trail until you hit a large, obvious boulder.
