Description Suggest change

This is a direct start into Christian Griffith's route "The Color of Pomegranates." It's not really a route you want to go ground up on. If you do, bring some small nuts and a few finger-sized cams. I added this direct start and two bolts to link this into the Twist and Crawl project, but I did not add any bolts to The Color of Pomegranates. I would suggest you climb Darkness Till Dawn and traverse over to the anchor. You can then hang your draws. I hang a 6 foot sling from the second to last bolt and a 7 foot sling from the 3rd to last bolt. I know, it's silly, but it's worth it!

The Color of Pomegranates refers to a 1969 film about Sayat-Nova, an Armenian poet. The film was originally titled Sayat-Nova, but the communist party changed its name to The Color of Pomegranates in an attempt to censor it.

Location Suggest change

This route is on the slightly overhanging face to the right of Darkness Till Dawn.

Protection Suggest change

8 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
