Kevin starting the upper crux of Dark Night


start on a giant teetering rock stackĀ…. depending on how tall you are or how many rocks are added to this stack this can be the crux of the route. the lower you start the harder it is! I think 13a if you start on bottom of the side pull and 12c if you can reach all the way to the first set of crimps. After start move left and continue up to horizontal roof. Fun moves on good rock! Holds are much less abrasive than most Bat Cave routes. Better to stick clip second bolt if working on first moves.


look for the giant rock stack below right facing side pull in the center of "cave". First route left of Fang Shui.


bolts with some fixed chains.
