Shadow Walker*** 8a+
[Shadow Walker, 2 kb]25m. Follow 'Circus Circus' to the roof. The half height bulge is the crux, but tiny edges with a runout might bar progress into the 'lions eye'. Span right from the white scoop to good finishing holds just right of the belay.

Great route. Good shakeouts before both cruxes means it's probably soft for the grade if not 8a.
