|The Black Wall
The "Doubleissima" of Mt.Tammany. Start in the corner of the Cheatstone Block.
Pitch 1: (5.8 PG) Move up and left to a dihedral capped by an overhang. There is an optional belay below and right of this dihedral (expect rope drag if you decline it, even with long slings). Climb the dihedral (small wires) to its top, step left, then move up and right (#3 Camalot) past some steep rock to a stance, then up to a belay next to the right end of a large, detached block with a slanted top.
Pitch 2: (5.10b PG) Step up onto the rightmost edge of the detached block. Reach up to a jug and gain the steep wall above. Follow weaknesses more or less straight up the wall to the top.
Right of the Cheatstone block
FULL set of nuts, hexes, small to medium cams and a #3 Camalot
