Great boulder problem on dark sweet desert varnish...

RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>


Start on some crimps high foot move to some side pulls big move to the sloper double up high heel hook and send to the T. O. P.

Really good. Exciting up top, but the landing is flat and easily padded.

Does anyone know where this tops out. Moving out left to the large foot rail and exiting the scoop or staying to the right more above the initial side pulls? Staying right seems quite a bit harder.

Traverse left past the crux rail moves, the top should feel a kind of sketchy but easier that the moves leading there.

Yah, 'Army of Darkness' moves leftward and up. Moving rightwards from the starting holds into the scoop is the 'Right Hand of Darkness'. It is very rarely done and is quite hard (given v8 in the book, but feels more like v9).
