Legal Eagle, 5.12c Shadowlands. Court House Wall. ...


A long, sick route that will have you fighting for your honor! Get pumped right off the bat with a very difficult pockets to crimps start that leads to ultra-hard undercling pinching. The prosecution will not rest after bolt three, or bolt four...or even bolt five and six as you find yourself trapped in more blank sections with small, sick pockets and other gnarly, tiny holds on viciously overhung stances with barely existing feet.


After you get a get rest at a sick pocket, cross examine your witness for the fitness and take down an unruly roof to a sick sidepull. Fight for your client all the way up a beautiful blonde face that has several cruxes in blank sections with tiny hands and feet. However, all the small holds will not make you have any more objections when they give way to sick jugs on overhung territory!

However, don't expect any order in the court until about three fourths of the way up when the best 5.11 climbing in the canyon makes you feel better about your guilty verdict.


Fourth route from the left. The built up belay ledge to the right of a tall pine tree near the trail gives away this route.


Take a dozen quickdraws. Stick clip second bolt. Open Anchors
