Where is this climb??
On the left side of Left Hand is Kiss the Barney Stone/Gilded Lily. On the right side is T-Rect followed by Triceratops. There is one line bolted in between.. so I did that line thinking it was Dark Days. The description "The farthest line of bolts on the Left Hand Rock." isn't helpful since T-Rect and Triceratops were added after the description.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure the line I did was not Dark Days because it felt about 5.1 or 5.2 and certainly not 5.8. I'm assuming the line of bolts I climbed was to perhaps give easy access to the top anchors for people looking to set up top ropes...
So, where is Dark Days?

|"Dark Days" is the "deep chimney system in the middle of the wall", as per Bernard G.'s The Climber's Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park (2001) page 228. I have also removed the name "Kiss the Barney Stone" and - with Bernard's permission - identified the sport route as "Gilded Lily (retrobolted)".|
