About Dark Side:

Steep routes predominate...was in early stages of development in '99. Now 2002 - More routes are coming along with plenty of projects in the works. Access via the tram line a little upstream from the sunny side of the river or sketchy rock hopping or the gravel pit on the other side of the river. Driving around can be tricky. Now 2003 - Many more routes completed. A very worthwhile area which is included in the soon to be released Nanaimo Crags 2nd edition.
