Reliving it


Awkward moves in a short fist crack lead to a ledge underneath a roof. Once you figure out how to stand up underneath the roof, one kind-of-airy move will get you above it, then a short army crawl will put you in reach of the anchors.


Right facing crack to your left when you meet the cliff line on the trail from Shadow of a Man


Standard rack, maybe an extra #3 C4, maybe a #4 to protect the easy move to mantle at the top of the crack.

Bolted anchor with chain and rap rings
