A little bit of Index's lower town wall somehow got misplaced out in Canyonlands. Dark Path is basically an inch-deep chimney that is climbed with more pushing maneuvers than the normal pulling. Delicate foot/back opposition and balance will get you past a few bolts and a bit of thin crack on A grade Wingate. This route has some of the best rock in the area. Clipping the anchor may be difficult...


The bolted route, two routes to the right of Stiletto at the Scorched Earth Crag. Rappel from two bolt anchor.


A few tiny and small cams and a few quickdraws.
