Description

This unusual route climbs the corridor Heart Of Darkness is located in, first as a chimney that's stemmed, and eventually as a full body chimney (think shower rod) with both hands on one wall and both feet on the other.

Perhaps leadable, but there's not much in the way of pro unless gear is placed in the Heart Of Darkness crack. Done as a TR it's a novel route to do while in the area.

We found it was possible to climb this route no hands all the way to the top--get into a stem and jump your way up. Gets a bit wide towards the top, but it's doable if you've got the legspan. Pretty weird, but good practice for El Matador! Feb 14, 2006
