Description

The Shanahan Crags are located to the south of "The Slab". There are a couple "classic" easy Flatiron routes found on the main rock. There are also some more demanding trad routes on the south face, also. The descent involves doing a short downclimb to the gully north of the southern summit. A short rap from a tree will put you on the ground. A scramble down the south side will get you back to your packs.
