This route is on a large orange wall just off the trail about 100 feet past the Colors of Emotion wall. The route goes up a sort of shallow gully right next to a large black streak. A fairly hard start leads to easier but really fun climbing up the gully and across the black streak to anchors.


7 closely spaced bolts to anchors. The guide book says 2 bolts to no anchors, but it must have been rebolted.

Name change history

The name change from Whipping Post  to Black is Beautiful was done by Bob D.
