Description Suggest change

the Shining is a hard gem set against the backdrop of moderates at the Overlook. With the quality movement and good gear this line would be a classic if it were nestled in somewhere on the Davidson wall at the Forks, but it shines all the brighter where it stands at the Overlook. 

The route essentially starts off a ledge 30 feet up. It is the right most striking dihedral (Redrum being the left). Begin with big long moves with edges and thin jams which lead you to a great rest. From here the climbing gets tougher as you move higher, though there are still decent rests before the crux. At the crux you will have to incorporate powerful stemming, tight balance, and if on lead, a calm head. The gear is good and the air is clean. It is more a matter of rubber and leg tension vs. strength. “Here’s Johnny!”

Location Suggest change

Toula had called this the Jungleland section. It is in between the Trinities to the west and Orangeout section to the east. It is very hard to miss if you are looking for it.

 Small to medium set of wires and offsets, loweballs can be nice. Cams: small to .75 and doubles to triples on some...
