This route climbs the slab just to the left of the striking jagged arete of Crushing Darkness. Scamper up the slab on 5.6 and 5.7 moves to a bulge just below the anchors. Guarding the anchors is a formidable boulder problem that is just as hard to figure out as it is to pull off. There isn't just one solution but after trying it a few ways there certainly isn't an easy solution. 

Hard to decide on stars or difficulty. There is nothing wrong with it but I feel like the fact that it is very easy and then very hard at the end might be a turn off for either side of the spectrum. The perfect crew for this one would be a group with people who would like to just climb the easy part and at least someone who would appreciate the little kick at the end... So they could clean it haha. 


Just after you climb down the little slab into the Alchemy area look for bolts on a slab to the left of a big Jagged arete.
