Black Magic combines the hardest climbing on the wall by trending hard left after the crux of 'Cloak and Dagger' and continuing directly into the beginning of the biz on 'Magic Carpet Ride '. Refrain from clipping the 7th bolt on Cloak and look left for a stray bolt in-between the two routes. Tread lightly through some kind-of-loose-block footholds (why it receives 3, instead of 4 stars) and angle directly towards the 5th bolt on Magic Carpet Ride .

This is a proud link-up but still a link up nonetheless.


See the description above.


12 bolts.
