Description 

This area is the very end of the established climbs along the main wall when walking east. You'll pass all of the other areas before getting to this one. Razor's Edge(5.11) is the very last climb you'll come to. There are a couple fun and moderate routes in this area and there's the gnarly and thin Razor's Edge. This is a good area and it allows you to pass all the areas and check them out as well.

Getting There 

Once arriving at the Race Crack area, turn right(east) and follow the trail for 15 minutes or so, passing the other areas (Green Crack, RBC, Four Kings) and you'll end up at the ending area marked by the series of flakes (Frosted Flakes 5.8)

Rock Climbing Photo: The dark corner

The Dark Corner 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  CA : Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP : ... : Razor's Edge Area
The route ascends a chimney that is in a deep corner, so this is a nice and cool route in the hot summer time. There are two cracks that run parallel up the entire climb and offer good placements for the length of the climb. Jam and chimney you way up, exit the chimney to the right and climb through some dirt and trees until you get to a flake you can built a belay anchor in. 3rd class walk off....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
