|The Dark Heart
|East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only|
Some areas require a guide.
An amazing highball with a good landing.
Start out by moving up past the right edge of the large scoop feature. Then head left across the scoop aiming for the sloping ramp that leads up to a white jug, crux. From the jug a huge move gains the obvious flake and another big move to the lip. Beware of loose rock over the lip when topping out.
As you approach the Dark Heart from the Dragons Den you first come to Backdoor Man. Head past this problem and The Tall Cool Red One is the next tall obvious face you come to.
Pads and spotter. There is a rock to the left of the landing area that might be an issue though I've heard that people don't actually hit it.

Sherman did FA this. I believe he wrote about it somewhere. I think I remember him saying he named it after a redhead in a beer poster - maybe Killian's? Great problem and a bit more serious than see spot run.

I found See Spot Run to be more intimidating. Of course I had a spotter when I did this and two pads vs. one pad and no spotters when I did See Spot Run. In any case you really don't want to take the fall from the top of either, though both landings are pretty good (FLAT) all things considered.
