BETA PHOTO: Where to go on Shocking the Shaman.


As Casey says, "Classic!". It is a relatively short route with really fun movement. Work your way through a very bouldery start (12ish) to a mellow 'traverse' (11ish) to the crux and beyond... The LC guidebook has beta giveaway picture of the crux sequence. So ignore that if you're avoiding beta. The holds are jugs, 'jugs' and "jugs".


6 bolts with bolt and chain anchor.


This is the second route over from the hole and fourth route over from the obvious group of short 13's below on south lip of the cave. Go straight and sort of left up through three bolts, traverse over on one, and then straight up through two more to the anchors.

Tried it 3 years back, It wooped my butt. Would love to give it another go. Was it chossy at all?

The band of rock at the very bottom is some sort of weaker conglomerate and seems to break apart with ease. You only use it for your feet and nothing important is chossy.
