Short but Stout!

This killer climb is hands down the best short, power-endurance route at The Darkside. Many climbers believe that it is the best route of its style and grade in the entire canyon.

Be prepared for failure early! Find the best feet right off the deck and be ready to wrestle with the bottom holds! A crazy feature, right out of the starting gate, makes this in your face climb one of the most difficult routes to read in the entire galaxy.

Find a way to maneuver around this impossible obstacle by using an uber-under cling. Get your feet up and make a huge move to a jug that feels like its in outer space. After this savior jug let the battle begin. Most of the sequences involve HUGE MOVES TO SICK HOLDS with super-sick, itty-bitty intermediates that have more than one opportunity to shut you down!

Keep fighting your way past powerful crux, after powerful crux, after powerful crux. A full value climb with a little bit of everything powerful in six bolts.


Second route from the left on the rightmost wall located on a ledge just past the short route known as Paternity Test.


Well protected! No one should feel as if they are to little to take this route on. Stick clip the first bolt and don't worry about a thing because all the bolts are exactly where you want them.
