BETA PHOTO: The Black corner


Start and the big ledge which runs along the base of most of the cliff, and below the big black streaked corner. There are two sections of 5.6 R slab climbing on this climb.

P(1) 5.9 (5.5 R), Move up on mostly unprotected slab for 40ft 5.5, then move up through the corner for 60ft via liebacks, sidepulls, mantles, and underclings. Belay of the left side of a grassy ledge with aspen trees.

P(2) 5.6 R, Move up and then right across a slab to a close to vertical wall with jugs and broken cracks continue up to a crack in the headwall, pull over bulging crack on jugs and move a across a slab to a crack and the top of the cliff.


The obvious, black corner in the center of the Eldora Wall.


Nuts and cams from very small to 4 inches. No anchors, rappel in and climb out.
