Description 

Speaking In Tongues is between Dark Arts and Fade To Black and it tackles a beautiful panel of black rock via stemming between twin seams. High on the route there are two bolts protecting some exciting moves traversing across the face. Save a yellow Alien or Metolius cam for the next section, and then clip two more bolts and a fixed wire before performing a difficult move up to the anchors.


Protection 

Double set to 1", 4 bolts and a fixed wire.

It's probably a hard onsight. Good, hard to see foot holds near the top on the right.
