The Dark Side


Crimp up a short face (rarely dry) gaining an attractive finger crack (same as Lurking in the Bushes), when it ends move right up a short left facing dihedral (lichen) through bushes to the base of an off width crack. Creep up the wide crack to a birch tree and belay.


This route climbs a crack system to the right of Resident Evil (bolts), and left of Butt Scum (Bolts) The start is marked by a striking finger crack.


Nuts, Cams, and maybe a Big Bro if you dislike unprotected off width.
