Tying in for the last time on the black
Beautiful route that follows the prominent black streak just to the right of painted warrior. This route is the best quality sandstone route I have ever been on. Unlike painted warrior, this route is not made of a broken system of flakes, but rather "molded" in bomber crimps. First pitch is 12b, and second is 12d. Done in 1 pitch it takes the 13a grade (and the only way to do it in my opinion!).
Painted Wall, just right of painted warrior

This was one of my proudest routes to put up. My wife Lori and I came down on a 38 deg. fall day in 2003 to climb the route in it's entirety in one pitch. This route will always be special to me. I hope everyone enjoys the line as much as I have!
