BETA PHOTO: Black Dynamite.


The crux is right where it looks like it is near the ground. Start up the crack and pull the bulge via flaring hand and finger jams. Gain a nice hand crack above and continue until the route meets up with the Standard Route.

Put this route together with Dreams of Far Away Places for a nice multipitch.

Edit: You can also downclimb the first pitch of Standard Route, or rap off a chockstone (bring gray webbing).


This is located between Standard Route and Sweet Sunday Serenade. Start just right of a pine tree at a black stained, slightly overhanging face split by a bulging finger crack.


Standard trad rack: small pieces to wide hand pieces.

Anybody know what the route to the right of Black Dynamite is? It's got a slab start, under a roof, with 2 bolts and then you pull a little bulge above and right of the crux on Black Dynamite. There's a 2 bolt anchor at about 80 feet. We did the Black Dynamite crux and then did the rest of this route on the right to be able to finish at the 2 bolt anchor, because we didn't think there was a fixed anchor on the Standard Route to easily use. Seemed like a decent way to climb Black Dynamite because above the crux looked really easy and slabby and the thing to the right offered steeper, and harder, climbing.
