Description Suggest change

Shadowfax is the first climb you come to as you reach Middle Earth heading up from the south start of the climbers loop trail. Shadow Fax is a hand crack that widens to slightly off width as you get near the top. The crux comes near the bottom of the climb where the crack moves slightly right with insecure feet (look to the small cracks to your right for help). The climbing is excellent and is good practice to improve your crack skills. The climb can be top roped by walking around the back of the rock and scrambling up to the anchor. The crack is easily protectable and should be led.

.5 to # 3 (a #4 can be used just don't admitt it to anybody). Bolt anchor and rap rings at top of climb.
