|Black Lakes Crag
Looking up the route from the ground
This is the easy and obvious crack in the dyhedral system. It is located at the top of the hill at the base of the cliff. Climb up through a short mantel move to a good ledge. clip the bolt with a long sling and continue up and slightly right towards the tree in the middle of the cliff face.
At the top of the hill below the cliffband. This route starts at the highpoint of where you can walk to.
Standard rack. Bolts on top.

I set this route in May/June of 2009 with the help of Myles Arbeeny. I set it originally to stay left of the tree, on the next dihedral/open book and move out onto thin crimps to the top. It goes much harder in the original variation, but too much time has passed to accurately put a number to it. If I remember correctly is was similar in difficulty to the route currently known as "Orange Wall".
