Description

Since most people come to Easter Rock to clip bolts this little gem lies buried in obscurity.

Steep and powerful, with finicky finger locks and bouldery sequences, this left leaning crack packs a lot of challenge and learning opportunity into 45 feet.

So, next time you head up to Easter Rock bring some gear and give Rain Shadow a try.

Location

Look for the obvious crack on the right side of Easter rock to the right of the Flying Beast.

Protection

Gear from small fingers to hands and at least a 50 meter rope. Lower off the anchors of the Flying Beast.

What's up with finishing on the Flying Beast anchors? Doesn't Rain Shadow have its own set of manky tat anchors to go to? I don't blame anyone for not wanting to use those anchors as they're definitely not as confidence inspiring as the ones on FB but continuing directly up the crack in the corner seems like the intended line. Did Dan Hare have anything to say about the finish when the above video was made? Jul 12, 2009
