Secret of Davenport


Start sitting quite low on the center of the Shadow of a Man face. Follow small crimps left and up slightly. Slap the lip and do a weird mantle about five feet above the ground. Not the best problem at the Holies, but cool holds. I climbed this thinking it was an FA and gave it this name. Dave Chancellor has since told me it has been done, but he says he cannot recall the name, so we will just go with this.


Shadow of a Man boulder, same face as the namesake problem


1 pad, if that.

This was originally put up on the day that George Harrison passed away and was named The Spiritual Beatle. Another variation called Everyone Has Dreams Starts at the same spot and traverses low and to the right into Shadow of a Man. Glad you guys had fun doing this just as we did!
