Topo for Dark Matter.


The route starts off a boulder just right of the crack in the middle of the wall "Sub Atomic" 10d and just left of "Rage" 12c which is also the shared start for "Salamander Slayer" 11d. A bouldery start leads to basically a no-hands where you head up and left into a clean blank headwall. Several hard cruxes lead to one final difficult heart break crux before the anchor. Probably the red point crux.
