Black Bart, (AKA. Ed Gardner) Tops out on the FA. ...

Description 

There's a large knob on the face just to the right of the Super Key tooth. Solo up to the knob, sling it and continue to the top. Descend as for The Key Hole.


Protection 

Not Much, a sling for the Knob and some wide pieces for the crack above.
