Dark Waters begins under the roof on underclings then pulls the lip and traverses left to a final jump move over dark water.


The cave below the New River Wall hosts a number of new boulder problems that can be climbed when the river is low or frozen.


A couple pads will do.

Does the stream ever get so high you can't get on this problem?

Hey Josh you comin down to D-town any time soon? The boulder definitely gets water under it. Late spring through sometime in the summer there is water underneath the boulder.

The water doesn't entire recede until Mid-October. Essentially a late fall, winter bouldering area (unless you want to stack rocks for hours to make the landing). Stand start (on the large undercling at the lower lip goes at V10).

I was trying the line today and all but the last big toss move was free of falling into the water. What a powerful line!! Really good man. I hope better temps will improve my performance on the line??

This problem has been chipped. The exit now has a large left hand crimp that makes the exit substantially easier. Sad. I wish people would leave established problems alone.

The chipped hold has been filled in.
