Heart of Darkness 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  Idaho : West Idaho : ... : Roadside Rock
Start up Midnight Visitor for the first 3 bolts, then do a delicate traverse right, passing one bolt and then joining up with the top of Junkie Cosmonaut. When you get to the anchors at the top of Junkie Cosmonaut, keep climbing onto the next pitch, which is called Shades of Grey.
