Far left side of the Alien Wall, North Side. Start on crumbling rock and soon get on rock of good quality with many holds. Balancy, a few laybacks, and overall a great climb that pays off with an awesome view.

5 out of 5 stars The Dark Side - Pitch 1, 5.10a

I was pleasantly surprised with this climb. Felt easy for a 5.10a, but loved the route. Good technique is used getting up this balancy route with opportunity for some laybacks. Climbed in what felt like hurricane winds and still enjoyed it.
