Jacob just about to start the bizz on Blackwater.

Description 

Blackwater is the second crack to the right of Coffin Crack. Start by either jamming or laying back a wide crack for 20 feet and gain a nice rest on a slab. Then begins the fun part. Jam fingers and thin hands in a shallow left facing corner for 20 feet. This is a very fun route, with the over all rock quality being better than the Coffin Crack.

Location 

This is to the right of the Coffin Crack climb.

Protection 

One #4 Camalot for the wide start, and a single rack to a #2 Camalot should do it (some extra thin hands size pieces couldn't hurt). Anchor at the top.
