Description

Back in the days when the boys in the Canyon Crew were young, dumb and full of cum, this was a pretty fun route.

Unfortunately it has succumbed to the forces of nature. And to make matters worse, a construction crew, who was charged with fixing the aqueduct, piled a bunch of wood right in front of it. The route is not by any means unclimbable, HOWEVER, just like the old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be.

Maybe someday, someone, with a chainsaw, a strong back, and an ambitious sense of work ethic, will liberate it from its pile of wood prison, and clean it up. But for now, most climbers just walk right past it.

Location: First line of bolts you will encounter after hiking up the trail from the Shadow Lands parking lot.

This would be the very first climb, on the right-hand most side of The Shadowlands and sits about 50 feet to the right of The Wall of Wall.

Protection

four or five bolts and closed shut anchors.

Explains a little - though frankly I think I would pass on it unless you've climbed everything else you could on this wall, there's a ton of great routes just a few moment's walk on a flat trail to the left, including great 10s.

I do disagree with the guidebook as well - I don't see that as a great warm-up (even considering a couple moves might now be occupied by those planks at the bottom). It's a short sequence of tuggish bouldering, you don't want to start your climbing day this way! Jul 25, 2017
