2016 Seasonal Raptor Closure on the Diamond MORE INFO >>>


The Black Sea includes all the routes from Jesters Of Chaos over to the route The Black Sea and all routes leading off the giant detached block above Ted, Ted Nugent.

This area is sunny, steep and well protected. Most of the routes above the block require only quick draws, runners and a few small cams from .25" to 1.5"

Getting There 

From the Lower Wall parking, follow the train tracks to the Country area. Walk to the far right of the clearing, near the start of GM (there may be a notice board up) and follow the obvious path uphill. After 10min you will come to a fork. The left fork leads to Blues Cliff and Middle Walls. Follow the right fork. After 3-5 more min you will come to a second fork. The left fork leads to the Upper Wall summit (also Little Elvis and Pajama Rock). In 8-10 more min you will be at the base of the Upper Wall. Cross the talus right and continue on the trail until it forks just before dropping downhill steeply. Take the left fork leading up hill toward the cliff.
