Description 

This route is made up the same killer stone located on the classic ten to its right. Enjoy a full value start to a stoopid big pocket. Take a big breath and start plugging two finger pockets to more two finger pockets. Enjoy a challenging sequence of super sick crimps and good pockets to a series of moves that involve about four sinker monos. Enjoy some bigger holds that get you into some run out easier territory which is followed by a swath of decently big holds that throw a thousand pumpy moves at you before letting off just below the anchors.

This is one of the best 5.12 minus climbs on the left hand side of The Darkside crag. The long hike is worth it. Enjoy one of the better hikes in terms of biodiversity and get set up at a really cool hang. Be sure to enjoy the cool temps of the tunnel before you get on this fine ass route and get shot down a few times before nabbing a really rewarding send.

Location 

After cooling your hot ass off near the tunnel with the chained door crawl up the blocks to the belay. Bullet holds is the middle route.

Protection 

Take a dozen quickdraws. Open Anchors.
