Crack right of Heart Of Darkness. Pretty sure this is listed in Vogel's guide as Apocalypse Now 5.10b, but it does feel more like 5.8. Short but sweet. Can also be done as a wide chimney, as it is in a corridor.

Descent Options:

Sling a horn and rap, or scramble up and left to rap anchors atop Heart of Darkness, or down lead.

4 out of 5 stars I'd call it 5.8

Placed a BD 3, 4 and a Big Bro # 2. Didn't bring the big bro with me the first try, got scared, bailed, got my big bro, placed it about 8 feet from the finish and laybacked it. It definitely felt like 5.8
