Jack of Shadows
<< Alive and Kicking < Catrin | Ride the Wild Surf > Great Balls of Fire >>
Usually in the shadows, this route tackles a groove-system up the left-hand side of the Colossus Wall.
1) 6a, 23m. Start up a rib, passing two bolts. Move down from the second and make a difficult transition into the groove on the right. Ascend this past more bolts until you are forced out down and right at the top of the groove. Perplexing moves, and long reaches, lead up past another bolt to a sloping ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 18m. Climb the left-hand side of the corner past three bolts. This proves to be steeper and more difficult than it first appears!
