Take a ride on Bob Siegrist's Dark Horse. Far left...
The dark horse of the crag...climbs much better than it looks. This climb ascends the slab at the far left side of Wizard's Gate. Clip the first bolt from a stance on a big crack system. From here, follow the bolt line up and through an overlap, utilizing a number of underclings and a few jugs. The upper portion wanders back right towards the chains and finishes with a nice, technical crux.
Far left side of the crag, about 50 feet left of Crystal Staircase. Leftmost bolted line.
6 bolts and chains.

Awesome climbing on this one! Don't usually find underclings and jugs that good outside of the BRC! If the distance to the bolt above the first roof seems intimidating, you can place a red Alien (or #0.4 C4) in the obvious undercling at that roof. The holds are bigger and better than they look. Another great climb!
