Start of Ebony and Ivory


Climb the chimney or do the harder bolted direct start to obtain the ledge. From here, thin face climbing right on the border between a black and a white streak leads to a traverse left on a sloper to a nice pocket. Now move up into the thin crack on even thinner feet. Be careful, as a fall in this section may lead to hitting the ledge below. Clip the third bolt from a jug and top out to the left.


Just right of the chimney that is right of Flat Fields.


3-4 bolts, depending on variation. Anchor/rap from tree just left of the topout.

I believe doing the route with the direct start goes at 5.12a
