Description

A great little gear line that traverses the front face of Tower 2 over fairly solid rock.

Sharing the same start as Cave Man,The Shadow breaks hard left before a bolt and into darker stone using an incipient crack system. The use of pockets and smears get you to a short section of a two inch crack/bulge (crux); place some gear here and fire the finish!

Initial gear can be tricky, but bomber placements are soon to follow, get after this because its there.

Location

This is the face/broken crack system that shares the same start as Cave Man. It climbs up & left and finishes at the shared anchor of Klein`s Girls. This is on the front face of Tower 2 15 feet left of Deja Vu. Sharing is caring.

Protection

Cams and small stoppers up to three inches, a couple of slings and draws.

Great route that I think gets done little. A perfect example of a route that would be lackluster if it were bolted. The gear makes it much more interesting. Feb 25, 2011
I really liked this climb. I had a bit of trouble getting a first piece. Fun moves Oct 12, 2008
