DescriptionStart out by placing some gear in Bird Turd, a crack which, as the name would suggest, is in need of a little cleaning up.
Hand traverse the obvious blunt rail right and mantle up to gain the bolts that mark the beginning of the rest of the quality granite face climbing of Liquid Shadows.
Supertopo notes the hand traverse being the crux but my partner and I found the crimpy crux around the second bolt to be noticeably harder, so the rating of 10d may be a bit sandbagged. There is some lighter brown patches around that bolt, so we suspect a hold or two may have fallen off.
The rock is otherwise fairly solid on this climb, but there's still a bit of cleaning to go. Don't let that deter you though, the climbing is pretty darn good - much better than it appears from the bottom.
