Description

Black Wall is really a misnomer, since most of the formation is a slab with a few sections pf steeper rock. Although the rock's black sections see considerable drainage in the winter and spring, the wall does offer some "adventure" climbs. You will climb on some rock that has lichens, moss, grass and other debris. But there are some excellent sections of rock. Most of the climbs are mixed with natural pro and bolts.

Getting There

The best approach is via the Cedar Trail off Trail 247, which brings one to the base of the wall. *To rappel off the wall with a single 60m rope, you need to reach the anchor chains for "The Alpha and the Omega". From these anchors, rap to the anchors on "Tribulation". It's worth noting that the top approach is quite sketchy and exposed.
