The "Black Wall" lies just left of the Great Northern Slab (i.e. The Free Area) at the Lower Town Wall. It has a dark brownish color that contrasts with the neighboring grey rock of the Free Area, and the wall is fairly uniformly vertical. The middle-right side tends to stay wet longer than the rock at the Free Area.

It involves jams, laybacks, and face holds. The crack goes to the left of the roof, above which is a three-bolt, chained anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in WA
