Blood Dries Darker is an epic journey that starts on Metropolis.

Climb Metro's first crux to the 7th bolt (5.12b to the big hueco with a tree in it), then branch right into the orange & black streak via a long move to a slopey rail. Once the colorful rock has been gained & the pump has been shaken, begin up a long, wandering, technical section. After the crux, the route ends with 5 bolts of resistance 5.12- finishing just right of Metropolis.


Start on Metropolis and branch right at the big hueco. You can get down with an 80m rope.


18 bolts, proper fixed anchor. Extended draws on the 6th & 7th help with rope drag.

This is an amazing route - glad to been able to help with the FA - and hope to repeat it soon!
It has some small holds and very tricky foot moves - and a rewarding finishing headwall is the icing on the cake! Feb 24, 2016
