From the top of Fear of a Black Planet, ascend a face to a sturdy flake, step right, and negotiate harder face/slab moves to the anchors. For variety of movement and position, a top five ORG pitch in my book.

Excellent route, especially if you link Fear... to James Brown. Just watch the rope drag, eh?

Excellent route! Link with Fear of a Black Planet for sure! Remember that you won't be able to lower from the top to ground on a single rope. It's easy enough to clean and pull at the top of Fear.

fun route! the guidebook fails to mention that you cant get back to the ground with a 70. maybe with an 80 but it would be really close. the 70 will get you back to the midway anchors, which is a comfy belay, and you can rap form there. can't link with a 60 without belaying at the top and making 2 raps

Open shut anchors replaced with Mussy hooks and a new, 1/2" stainless bolt. Paid for by donations collected at Wilson's Eastside and the Rubber Room.
