Start the route about 5-10 feet left of shadow. You can see the first bolt 20 or so feet up, you can get a .2 piece of pro in this section but its maybe 10ft up so more mental than anything. However this section is quite straightforward. You get to a stance and clip first bolt. Make hard moves (crux) for the next 15-20 feet until your second bolt. You get a good rest here and either traverse right to the shadow anchors or go to the top via 1 more bolt (5.7) this route has the most technical 5.10 climbing on the wall its a blast.


Left of Shadow


3 bolts. 1 .2 piece.

really fun moves. Climbed shadow as one long pitch all the way up to upper anchors. Which was really fun by the way. And set up a top rope with the second rope my partner brought up. We tr'd inner sanctum to the left as well. Cruxes felt similar.
