THE DARK END OF THE STREET 5.11a *** (110’) M(11b)
Climbs the face left of MERCY STREET, angling left of the huge overhanging inverted triangle. Three distinct cruxes make for a variety of (progressively harder) moves – crimpers, jugs, slopers are all here. Eases off for the top gear protected cracks (medium to small nuts). Cold shuts on top. Possible to lower with a 60m rope.


1st route on the left end of Middle Earth.


mixed (med. to small nuts needed for the easier top)

"Huge overhanging inverted triangle" just right of this route is now gone…. which makes it feel safer, but then again so is the nice belayer shade tree at the bottom. Apr 21, 2016
