Just a reminder to those that are going into the VC. The only public way in is the back way off of Sheridan lake road. The Dark Canyon access is not open to public even if you walk or ride your bike. You still cross private property! Vehicle clearance can not be your excuse for not going the back way. Many low clearance cars have made it down the back road.

I take back what I said about it being a height dependent crux. Today a person of relatively short stature figured out a way through the roof/crux. So it may be easier for taller folk, maybe. But it's hard to say since with such a unique climb. Nice line Mike!! Sep 13, 2009
