DK lowering off of the FA of Out to the Black 5.9 ...

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


A relatively casual first half leads to a steepening section where the holds get smaller, harder-to-find, and are pointed in less-than-helpful directions. Concentrating on feet, and looking for the best of the pockets keeps it sub-5.10. A fun outing.


The second line to the right of the right-facing corner that marks the end of the overhanging rock.


13 bolts, ring anchors.

Choss. It needs 5 years of heavy use to even get a star from me. Nice pockets here and there, but a whole lotta choss cubes all over.

Still shedding holds in 2016. If I have the right climb, it has a large aluminum ring hung on a sling on the seventh bolt, right before the crux, which is awkward, delicate climbing on breakable holds. Looks like someone bailed? I counted nine bolts + anchors, not 13.
