Start just left ( West ) of Theater of Shadows. Climb,... tending slightly left toward breaks and thin cracks where protection may be realized. Continue up the thin cracks in small left facing corners,... until a very good belay point is realized at about the 180 foot level. The second pitch ascends the thin crack system for approximately 30 more feet,... when one exits right and upward across a beautiful face section to the chains on the 2nd pitch of Theater of Shadows.


The route is located on Jackson's Thumb. Start approximately 15 feet to the left of Theater of Shadows. Ascend upwards,... tending left. At the chains on the top of the 2nd pitch of Theater of Shadows, one may rappel, or finish on Theater of Shadows.


The protection is entirely comprised of passive traditional gear ( no bolts on this baby ), realized in numerous cracks and fissures. The protection is adequate,... though the leader may want to be solid at difficulty levels above the 5.7+ rating. No fixed gear or anchors,.. until one reaches the chains at the top of the 2nd pitch on Theater of Shadows.

How appealing! Did you "realize" the potential for this line whilst rapping Theater of Shadows? Not many truly traditional lines at this grade! Great find. The art of nutcraft... Feb 20, 2015

Hey bheller, Thank you for the kind words,... It was done with the " Old School " mentality of the ground up ascent approach. No previewing. :) Feb 21, 2015
