Description:

Climb the obvious left-facing corner uphill and around the ridge from Green Spur for one pitch. Double rope rap from the anchors. One of the most overlooked pitches in Eldo, this is a good climb when waiting for the gumbies on Rewritten, Green Spur or any of the other routes in the area. 2 ropes needed for rap

3 out of 5 stars Superb one pitch climb

You can rap with one 60m rope. You must do it in two raps, though. First go to the anchors atop the first pitch of the climb to the left of Darkness. Then rap to the ground from there.

4 out of 5 stars cool route

This was great fun! A bit of everything. Note that the gear up high is a little larger than expected because the crack opens up behind the fingers that you see from the ground.

Great route, we used only one 70-m rope for this and got off just fine, you don't end up on the ground, but you end up on the huge ledge about 10 feet from the ground with a super-easy downclimb. The step over at the bottom on this one to get into the crack was spicy!!! I was doing some no-handed stemming with the wall in front of me slightly overhanging, wohoo. The crux is pretty spicy too as it is rather reachy for someone who's shorter.
