Rob on The Shining 5.8+ at Lady Slipper- Emerald C...


Boulder out the tough opening moves with a good spot or tricky gear. Once you get established at a rest the route is pretty straightforward. Plug up some good fingerlocks on an aesthetic splitter crack in beautiful, solid stone. It needs to be much longer, but alas!


From Yellow Brick road walk a few yards to the right. You can't miss this striking short route.


Nuts and TCUs work well, with a couple smaller cams (#.75 and #1 camalot size).
Bolted anchors
