Kurt Jensen on Black Hole Sun

Description 

Located just to the right of the prominent chimney "Mark's Moderate." The rock on the route is black on some parts, and quite light on others. The crux is getting over the bulge right after the 3rd(?) bolt. Requires a fun yet bizarre move.

Protection 

5 bolts to top anchors. There's also a higher set of anchors that access the 2nd pitch.

Terrific route that is different in character from the other routes at this crag. Technical moves and small but positive holds.

Did this without the chimney, I think this route is harder than Napa Valley Party Service. Not the best but worth doing once.
