Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


This is a bolted, nicely polished slab climb located to the left of Slipstream. Pretty sure it gets its name because it is more shaded than the rest of Cookie Sheet, in case you don't feel like baking in the sun. It's nice to set-up a TR at the anchors for Pitch 1 for climbers new to polished slab.


After the gnarly scramble to the base of Cookie Sheet (must love a big talus pile!), Darkside is the first route on the far left side.


There's 5 bolts on the 95' Pitch 1 leading to a 2-bolt anchor. Pitch 2 is shorter at 70' and easier (maybe 5.5). A couple of bolts and a pin get you to the anchor.
