Description 

This is another overlooked problem on the Darkside. Just to the right of Warmup Pockets and just before the end of the Warmup Traverse is a blocky prow with a short, left-angling crack at the bottom. Start sitting with finger-locks in the crack, and move up big, blocky holds. When you get to the steep part, grab the awesome big left hand rail, reach up right, and an arm length over the top with your left hand you'll find a really good in-cut pocket. Your target is to go basically tip of the overhang while mantelling just barely left.

Location 

It is just to the right of Warmup Pockets and just before the end of the Warmup Traverse.

Protection 

A couple pads. The rocks underneath the top-out are gnarly and could cause damage if you fall without appropriate protection.
