Description [Edit]

A 200' cliff perched high above the canyon floor, this wall holds a surprising number of great climbs. Facing NW, this cliff is hidden from the sun most of the day, and as such makes a great place to go during the summer. The approach is long and difficult, but great rock awaits those who endure the trek!

L->R:
A. Twilight, 7, 1p, 60', gear.
B. Gray Pilgrim, 9+, 1p, 80', gear.

Getting There [Edit]

6 miles up CO Hwy 7 is a pullout on the left, park here. Cross the river and walk uphill, staying to the South of Bullshit Rock, the obvious formation opposite the parking area. Find the path of least resistance, and trend up and left through dense brush and large boulders. Near the top of the hill lies the Wailing Wall. Trend directly left from the wall to arrive at The Shadows. Expect an approach of 45-60 minutes, complete with dense brush, poison ivy, and loose rock.
