Description 

The Shaman is an often overlooked crag despite its relatively short approach and good quality climbing. This might be because it's shady to the point of being dark (not a bad thing in the middle of the summer) and because its climbs are neither sport nor trad. They are "adventure sport" or whatever you want to call routes that are bolted, but only every twenty or thirty feet.

Despite all of that, if you're climbing at Zoe, which only has a few routes, you're almost at The Shaman, so why not give it a look?

Getting There 

From Zoe, head up and right for a few hundred feet. The crag should be the obvious wall on the left.

The first pitch of this climb has only three bolts. Before the first bolt, a good nut is obvious, but after that, fiddling with gear probably isn't worth it. Despite that, while the climbing requires thought, it feels reasonably secure and enjoyable....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
