The dark corner

Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>


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.


Head past Frosted flakes, shortly after the trail will break off to the left. Head left, you'll see the route, it's the dark, wide corner. After topping out walk off to the climbers right. Third class.


Nuts to 2". Save some pieces for the anchor, .5-2"
