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


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.


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

Done in the early-mid 80s by Outward Bound students and staff. They have called the formation "Hollow Mountain" for years.
