    Thought this climb was a sandbag until I saw Gery Unterasinger flash it without even using chalk... right after doing the exact same thing on Celestial Streaker.

    Felt like a 12d crux honestly. Top 5 all time route names, nice one Marcus!

    A burley boulder problem right off the deck. Took more tries than it should have.

    Named after the ever-present storm cloud that can lurk over the S-Dorrien that blocks the sun. Good send train with Yysbrand, Maddy and Mason. Just left of Celestial Streaker.
