Description Suggest change

Hot and muggy day? Tired of the scene down at Cracked Wall? Up for a little leading? Well, then, head for Shadow Rock. Sunny sometimes, but, as the name suggests, shady many others. Watch out when climbing around noon, the sun can be blinding. It's slab central, but you'll find plenty of interesting moves to keep your focus and attention.

Getting There Suggest change

From the main road, head all the way up until you start heading into the woods. Follow the climber’s trail that forks left. You should go along the meadow, ignore the first turn off, go into some high brush and into some trees and take the trail left. This approach is milder than P Wall, and you should be able to see the wall not too far off the original climber‘s trail.
