Legendary Back Woods Super Splitter!

Description 

This is a difficult one in regards to how much it means to me and the over all perfect ascetic nature of the route! It makes a description almost impossible to write as there are no words to express how perfect of a line The Darwin Splitter is!!!
One of the most surreal and nastalgic lines you will ever climb!!

Location 

Obvious mega splitter hand crack to chimney, splitting the center of the super clean Evolution wall!!

Protection 

Gear to 5", doubles from finger to hand size pieces!!

The Darwin crack and the Green Flash are both killer. It is an epic slog getting up there though. Definitely add or subtract a star or two depending on how you feel about hiking. Very cool area.
