Description 

Super steep, and aesthetic, Darkness Falls is an eye catching route with impeccable rock, great movement, and very cool roof encounters.

Big holds lead to a shouldery boulder problem that ends with a huge jug. A short section of classic Red River crimps gain a huge horizontal break below the first roof. Follow the break out right, and muckle down on a few edges to gain a large horn over the roof, then make a big move to another large shelf. Once recovered, motor up easier pockets to some generous holds below the final roof. Follow the huge flake up and right, grab some slightly disappointing scoops past the lip and haul yourself over the roof and onto the head wall where better holds lead to the chains.


Location 

Rightmost route. Look for a huge flake in the upper roof.

Protection 

Bolts with fixed draws and a two bolt anchor with biners. The first two bolts don't have fixed draws.
