Description 

The Shamoo area is one of Gretna’s largest areas. Although not as nicely laid out as other areas, there are lots of great problems hidden in its nooks and crannies including the classics: Talking to Myself (V1), Decepticon (V3), Help Meat (V4), Shamoo (V6), and Heaven (V8). Some of the problems are quite tall so bring a couple of pads and lots of power. Enjoy!


Getting There 

Take the trail beside the nature center into the forest. At first three-way trail junction go Right. At second three-way junction go Left (uphill) and watch for an obvious access trail on Right just behind a large tree. Take access trail into forest. Pass the 45 area and look for access trail immediately on left. Follow the cairns uphill into the Shamoo area.

An alternative (and longer) approach is to enter from the white blaze trail via Smiley’s access trail. Follow the access trail uphill past Smiley to Shamoo’s access trail on Right just before the 45 area. Continued uphill from there following cairns.

The start of Shamu

Shamoo V5 6C  PA : Mount Gretna : Shamoo Area
Shamoo is one of the top ten boulder problems of Mt Gretna. It embodies all of what diabase climbing is about: small holds, balance and most importantly technique. Shamoo climbs the striking seam and left arete on the most prominent boulder in the area. Begin easily enough by laybacking up the left arete whilst smearing. Work your way into a position where you will be spanning between the arete and crack with your hands and no feet. Hike the left foot up to nearly nothing, perch for all you ...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
