Extensive bluff along the eastern edge of the Holy Boulders property. Seem to stay pretty shady when the leaves are on the trees, expect it gets enough sun to stay warm in the winter.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail to Worm's Way and Shadow of a Man. The cliff is just uphill from them.

Some nice feet on the arete of the crack wall at the beginning peter out a third of the way to make for a pretty blank extended crux that ends with a difficult mantle. A couple of easier moves for a second mantle will get you up to the anchors.Definitely requires solid off-width technique. Long sleeves recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in Illinois
