Setting up to reach out right to a miserable pinch...

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Start matched on the obvious low semi-circle edge right of Hagan's Wall and move up left to a poor edge/pinch hold. Reach right to a choice of poor right hand pinches. I used the higher one. Bring your left hand up to an obvious thin edge and bump right to the "traverse ramp". Finish up this problem.

For the full grade, the obvious keyhole slot on the right is off.

This is in the vicinity of the now defunct Yojimbo and can be considered a direct start to the ramp problem. Very crimpy and sharp but a good addition to the wall.


Just right of Hagan's Wall.


A couple or three pads is a good idea since you are climbing over a big step.

Cool problem Peter. I'm glad there is yet another fun route on cloud shadow. I felt that sticking the left hand thin edge (very thin edge) before gaining the ramp was for sure the crux. I thought it was perhaps a bit easier than UCT though, although this 'shadowline' suits my climbing preferences more. V8/9.

Thanks for the input on the grade Jonathan. V8 seems really lowball for that sequence, but I could settle for V9. I updated the grade accordingly. Comparison with UCT is tricky since they are very different problems. Try the lower start to the Left Bulge on Rear-End rock for another interesting "V8/9" experience.

Lots of variations exist to this problem. I did a super interesting one today- start on the two poor crimps next to the glue, move up to match on a sloper pinch rail with tricky feet and then punch into the slot and finish up the traverse. Cool wall for sure.
