Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Shadow of a Doubt is a classic and excellent Tuolumne knob face climb with steep climbing on larger, kind of spread out knobs where getting from one to the next is super stimulating. Lots of great aesthetic moves.

Look for a wide crack in a short right facing corner/ramp leading to an obvious beautiful line of knobs for the start.

Location

To the left of Mystery Achievement.

Protection

8 bolts protect this long sustained pitch with some go for it required getting started. A large cam before the first bolts could be handy.

Rappel from bolted anchor or continue a steep knobby and possibly mossy second pitch 5.9 with no protection bolts to another anchor. It maybe possible to sling a knob somewhere for additional marginal pro somewhere along the way.

Here's some additional beta: the pitch has 7 bolts and a #4 camalot can go in before the 1st bolt, which is ways off the deck and is probably the mental crux to get to. We placed a fist-size rock in the obvious pod, which worked well too, since each thought that the other is bringing the cam. The pitch is about 33 m, so a 70 m rope is enough to lower off the 1st pitch anchor. One of the most sustained pitches at the grade, where no section is easier than about 10b. It's in the sun until sunset, so better to go there early. Additionally the rock is black, so it heats up a lot... Jun 25, 2018
