Pulling through the easy section of Black Magic.

Description 

Climb directly up the middle of the tall slabby face until the break at 3/4 height. Take a breath and continue up passing a good pocket to the top.

It's tall, but with good technique not too tricky.

Location 

Middle of the SW face

Protection 

Pads and spotters

"X" rating here is a bit exaggerated. If you fell from the top, and put a pad on the rock, with a good spotter, you'd be fine.

Would be R rated if the rock up high were not hollow rotting garbage.

That said - the climbing itself is great, the position is fantastic - and the problem is recommended. Just know how to climb on choss before you get on this.
