Right Hand Of Darkness
|146 page views|
Start the same as 'Army Of Darkness', with a good high right hand edge/sidepull and the left on a low crimpy sidepull/undercling. After getting established on the wall, move right into a shallow scoop and upward using underclings and small crimps.
This line rarely has chalk on it, which is a shame since it climbs beautifully and offers some of the finest rock at Big Bend. The lack of chalk adds to the experience as part of the difficulty lies in identifying usable holds amidst the sea of black sandstone.
Good footwork and unwavering confidence is helpful!
Located on the right end of the face visible from the road. This problem starts the same as 'Army of Darkness' and ascends perfect black varnished sandstone. Beautiful!
Lots of pads and spotters are useful. This problem is quite tall and the landing area is uneven due to a large sloping rock at its base.

This problem is f.u.n.k.y. Although very intriguing. I would love to get some more beta on this thing, it seems very improbable.
Climbs like these are hard to work because you just never know if that key hold has broken making it downright impossible. Although, since its been posted, I guess it's possible. Back to the drawing board.
