Not so new routes at the Shamen

Post by ikestar » Tue Aug 06, 2013 6:33 am

A few years back the Squamish Access Society funded rebolting at the Shamen in Murrin and I am just putting the word out as it was not advertised besides thier website and this quality cliff never made it into the select guide.
The routes re-equipped are The Shamen 10a, Tia 11c and Medicine Wheel 10d (all 2 pitch climbs) and the Raven (pitch 3 11a). Bolt for bolt was replaced with the exception of Medicine Wheel in which 2 pins were replaced by 2 bolts and a bolt was added near the top of the pitch as a direct variation finish to a new separate anchor. All routes require a light rack...bring extra finger size cams for Medicine Wheel.
Also expect a few run outs on good holds as the routes where established by Nick Jones in the late 80's who had a reputation for not overly bolting.
Enjoy
