1/4" bolts, similar to the distinct one you mention on the long lead-out, mark the original route, to the top. I choose the line on "The Shadow Nose" by how the mid-morning sun in July created a distinct shadow line. I scouted the route as much as I could from the ground, and from views while on routes to the side. I never rapped it, just climbed it, " on sight" [following the shadow]with my partner. He was Doug Wiens, if I remember right.
The name comes from the old radio serial, but is appropriate to anyone who wants to see for himself the original line. The shadow knows.

Classic Meadows slab climbing with original rating of 5.7 upgraded to 5.9r. Some have said that the line may have crossed onto West Country for easier climbing but old, original bolts are clearly to the left of that route as per Reid/Falkenstein guide. Bolts have not been replaced and are bad, especially the one bolt above old belay bolts.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant information to share after a climb.
