The crux is at 1/3 height. Black Beauty is thin for the grade at its crux but cruiser for upper 2/3rds.


It is 40 feet left of November Reign on a black ramp.


5 or 6 bolts to anchor.

Good route, a bit tough for noobs, but at 8+, it should be.... I was fooled, thinking I was on the 5.7 (which is to the left). Much more satisifed even though I struggled with the sequence through the crux. I am pretty sure it has 6 bolts....

I was setting it up for my kids and had a hold break. First time I've ever whipped on an 8. I left plenty of other suspect holds for others! Don't clean this on rap - the rope pull can be tiring due to anchor placement.
