Description 

The Dark Corner boulder has a great slopey arete with well placed sidepulls to get you to the top as its main feature route, Dark Corner. There are also a couple of easier routes on this boulder too.

Getting There 

The Dark Corner boulder is downhill, past the Steal Your Face boulder on the main bouldering trail. Alternatively, you can hike in on the trail that branches off of the MST between the Unclimbed and First Boulders, and hike just uphill from the Ledges boulder to the base of Dark Corner.
