This secluded wall has recently become overgrown. It provides high quality routes when clean, so hopefully more traffic will keep the moss at bay.

Getting There 

Follow the upper wall trail for approximately 30 minutes until you're almost to the base of the upper wall. An indistinct trail breaks out left along the base of the Shady Lane cliff.

I'd give this route 4 stars if were just a little longer. This route starts out pulling a steep section on jugs. Then the crack goes from hands to fingers, with a thin crux at the top. We cleaned this route in January and it has held up well so far. It dries fairly quickly after rain....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

The trail to get to this crag is currently not very well defined at the beginning (but is still smooth walking, definitely no bushwhacking). A few more details to help you find the crag:

Hike almost all the way to the Upper Wall. The Upper Wall trail passes directly beneath a large cliff with some cool looking roofs/overlaps shortly before the last steep bit up to the Upper Wall itself. You can see the Upper Wall just above when approaching this cliff. Go left here and hike along the base of the cliff, passing beneath a few routes in need of a scrub (bolts visible). The trail will become more distinct as you go. The cliff band becomes a bit smaller, the trail drops down briefly and then rounds a bend back up to the base of Shady Lane. About 5 minutes from the main Upper Wall trail to the base of Shady Lane.

Shady Lane is currently very mossy and in need of serious cleaning, which is too bad as they are some fun climbs.
