Description:

Ever wonder what that giant roof at the top of Dark Shadows goes? Well, with some scary pins and bolts, along with a piece of wide gear or two, you too can climb the route that received its FFA from Richard Harrison, John Long and Lynn Hill back in 1981. Good luck, that's a scary one!

Descent Options:

Double rope rappel straight down to link back up with Dark Shadows.

4 out of 5 stars cool

fun route, you should definitely bring some shoes that you can stand on very small holds with you. that pin in the begining moves! don't trust it. handren has this rated 5.11c....i think the hardest move might be 5.11a...mayeb harder, but after the crux it is REALLY simple.

3 out of 5 stars Find some heart

Great route. Only wish there where anchors directly after pulling through the roof. The hardest section of the climb is the first 4-6 moves, afterwards its prob 5.8 at best.
