Climb past the first two bolts of China Syndrome then traverse left to finish on Dark Side, avoiding the cruxes of both routes. Somewhat strenuous climbing at the bottom of China Syndrome quickly turns to 5.10 after the traverse. Long draws on bolts 3 and 4 will help to reduce rope drag. This is a fun, less pumpy alternative to China Syndrome and maybe a good intro to the steeper climbing at French's for the 5.11 climber.

Given the number of variation routes at French's, I'd be surprised if someone hasn't already done this. If you have any credible FA info please let me know.


Start as for China Syndrome. After 2 bolts climb directly left, clipping two more bolts before climbing straight up to finish on Dark Side. Anchor with chains and biners.
