DescriptionFive O'Clock Shadow climbs a panel of gray rock above the popular moderates, Graybeard and Bearded Outlaw.
It's possible to climb this in one long pitch, combined with Bearded Outlaw. Or, climb Graybeard or Bearded Outlaw, and belay on the ledge above their anchors at a 2 glue-in bolt anchor. From there, step left and on to the gray slab that makes up Five O'Clock Shadow.
Five O'Clock Shadow has positive holds, good texture, and a crux early on that involves some balance and finding the best holds.
You can stop at an anchor below the edge of the cliff for a lower or you can continue to the top of the cliff where you can belay from above and rappel from chains with rings.
You need a full 60 meter rope to lower or rappel. Watch your ends, and put knots in the ends.
