Description

This portion of the north face epitomizes what Black Bluff is all about - a fairly unbroken cliffband with route after route rising above the treetops to sweeping vistas on the edge of it all.

Don't miss Aurora Borealis (5.9), Black Bart (5.9), Social D (5.10b), Shooting Star (5.10b) and Powder Finger (5.11a) whilst cragging here.

Getting There
