Start just to the right of 'Squirming Coil' on a low, left sidepull and a sloping, right hold on the arete. Moves left up to a crimpy sidepull, then a LONG reach slaps up right to a sloper. Struggle with the bad feet and throw for the nose at the lip and mantle up.


This is just to the right of 'Squirming Coil.'


Pads and an attentive spotter, the landing is bad, if you fall you're rolling right down the trail.

Huge thanks to the Front Range Climbing Stewards for their beautiful trail work at the Dark Side. This problem now has a perfect flat landing! Feb 23, 2017

Starting far right on the other side of the arĂȘte adds to the pump and I think possibly another V6 move or two. Apr 18, 2014
