Oh my God! It hurts! But the pain is totally worth it in the end. This climb is phenomenal! Be prepared for big 5.11 moves to big holds with tinny-weenie-bikini holds in between. Starts in a crack that leads to a layback which then positions you on a dainty ledge with only a couple of killer mono's to crank your way to the next hold if you can find it.

The pain doesn't stop there! Keep navigating your way through hard to read holds up around the bend. This climb feels forever long because you won't see the anchors till it's nearly over. Just keep breathing and pushing your way up this canyon masterpiece the reward will be worth the effort.


Moving from right to left (on the righter-most side of The Darkside wall before the climbs get shorter) would make this the sixth climb on this part of the wall where the 5.11 climbs live.


10 quickdraws and open shut anchors.

not really 5.11 climbing... those monos are tiny and shallow. not to be missed! One of the best pitches of "5.11" anywhere. Sep 10, 2017
