BETA PHOTO: Black Eye, 5.9+, R


A loose, scary face climb.


It starts up Simpatico, but then moves left onto a steep buttress with a bolt and then a left-slanting crack.


One bolt and a few pieces of gear

Difficult and pretty dangerous due to crumbly rock. Definitely not a good solo, but an O.K. lead... Probably best left as a top rope climb, though.

There has been a fatality here when someone leading the climb ripped their pro...not a good anything but TR. Cranny is a far better route.
