The Shadow of a Man boulder and the surrounding area is home to a ton of problems ranging from very easy to very hard.

Getting There 

From the Mollusk boulder, simply follow the trail until you reach the cliffline. The trail will fork to the left and to the right; the left fork leads to the Illuminati area, and the right fork leads to the Shadow of a Man boulder. Turn right and follow the trail until you hit a large, obvious boulder.

Shadow of a Man V5 6C  Illinois : The Holy Boulders : Shadow of a Man Area
One of the best of the grade the Holies has to offer. Starting on a low jug, move up to a slopey sidepull, do some magic with your feet and reach your left hand up to a bad crimp. Get your feet up, and do a tricky move to a blocky jug in the middle of the face. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Illinois
