An excellent line with great climbing. Doesn't get done much, should get done more often! One of my favorites in the canyon. Well protected.
Dark Rose is the first bolted route you encounter hiking up the canyon. It is just right of "Crown of Thorns" on the western end of The Watchtower.
4 bolts + 2 bolt/chain anchor.

A bat has been calling one of the good holds home. Don't wake him up...
Some of the best moves on the Watchtower - coupled with some of the most uninspiring hardware(surprise surprise).

I agree with Boissal. Great moves, but the bolts and hangers look ancient and thin. Great climb though. Probably my favorite in Ferguson.
