Description

The Shamu 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), Shamu (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.
