Black Streak, 5.11+.


Start on the obvious flake of the Zipper. After about 10 feet, smear out left past Andromeda, toward the black streak. Smear up right of the black streak to the top. This route also has a A3 or 5.12 direct start from the bottom. If you aid it to the top, it's an A5.


This is just right of the black streak, left of Andromeda and Zipper.


TR anchors at the top

With the direct start, a very tough climb. Sustained and sequential.

I always wanted to put some black plastic in the depression at the top of the crag and melt snow so I could 'farm' this as an ice climb.
I'm surprised no one has ever done that yet?
