Description

Black Wave Wall is the continuation of the Crag Ranch ridge as it dives down the hill. There are some crags at Devil's Head (Headstone, Starcastle) where the routes live up to the stunning initial appearance of these cliffs. Then there are others (Crimpfest) where the routes are much better than what the initial appearance of the crag might indicate. Black Wave is in the latter category, giving an excellent lineup of moderate routes on good rock despite a rather average initial impression. The wall faces west, offering superb morning climbing in the summer heat. This is one of the best places at the Head for stringing together a nice group of 5.9-5.10 routes without having to move the pack.
