|Black and Tan
|In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise|
A long, low-angled, fun climb on sharp limestone. Lots of positive holds, including the edges of a couple of flakes. The rock is rough enough and the climb low-angled enough you could probably smear all the way up if you wanted to.
At the left side of Black and Tan climb the ramp that slopes upward from right to left. Climb up and over a gap at the top (left) side of the ramp. Once through the gap the starting bolt will be obvious. The start is shared with two other routes, so keep bearing right as you climb.
8 bolts to Metolius rap anchors (with a quicklink on the left anchor). The rock is rough, there are some sharp edges, and the climb is low-angled so we belayed from the top and then the belayer rappelled rather than lowered to save wear and tear (and worry).

Couldn't tell where the route went based on the guidebook. Too many bolts going everywhere from newer routes put up. Use the photo here instead.

Fun warm-up to the Woodsbury area. Great slab at the beginning, and than a fun flake at the upper half that you can fun on. This route and area is in the sun in the morning.

This route shares anchors with the route to the right, Redolence. Learned this the hard way when there was someone already leading on that route when I started up.
