DescriptionBlacktail's "softer" side... though that's a relative term here. There are more moderate routes in Upper Blacktail than Lower Blacktail, but the best climbing still comes in at 5.11. Wild at Heart and Graceland are the best 11s at Blacktail. And Crackin' the Cherry is dang fun too.
Getting ThereFrom the Blacktail parking lot, walk South on a well developed trail for 10-15 minutes. The trail heads up the hill and crosses a small creek. After about 5-10 minutes heading uphill, look for a trail to the left through the talus. This trail takes you to the Middle Wall, and then continues to the Upper Wall.
