  • Description 

    Riddles in the Dark begins on the undercling halfway through the roof. Easier to do when the snow is high. The crux is crossing through to a crimp and then bumping to the "jug."

    Two stars for good movement and interesting holds.
    Loses stars for landing and overall aesthetic.

    I will decline positing beta for this route, since I believe that everyone does this route differently based on their height. Expect toe and heel hooking.


    Starts on the undercling, moves left after gaining the crux jug.


    3 pads. Spotter.
