10m. A short but exciting extension to either Dark Matter or Heart of Darkness climbing the bulges directly above the Dark Matter/Heart of Darkness lower off via an inverted V niche. Can be done as a second pitch to either route or used to make one long pitch with a two-stage lower-off.

Gain the inverted V niche then get on to its R arete with difficulty. Bridge back L, exposed, and continue up the groove to the top lower off. 2BR to 2 ring bolt lower off.

pauldrew 28 Aug, 2017 Lead Loose block on right after crux, fairly sizeable and shifted slightly when I pulled on it. Probably won't come off easily but could do with being crow-bared off. Grade nearer 6a than 6b. Wet hold on left before crux, but seep down slab pretty small.

harold walmsley 27 May, 2015 Lead β 1st ascent. The slab in the back of the niche usually seeps and today was no exception. The fingerhold high on the slab was wet, as almost always, but can be used anyway. Some dry rock is needed for the feet and there was just enough. The crux move to get out onto the R arete from the niche might be much harder for those with stiff hips?
