Description Suggest change

Big jugs alternate with friction feet on the right arete of Blackstone. A few mini-balance cruxes exist but as a whole the route is consistent 5.8 on great textured rock. Be careful of a few ledges.

Location Suggest change

Obvious route up the right-side arete of Blackstone. (boltline is to the immediate left of the arete)

Protection Suggest change

All stainless bolts (6 to first anchor, 2 to second), stainless lower off biners at top for each station. Need 60 meter rope.

Shares anchors with the 5.6 on the right face of the arete, or you can climb past these anchors and continue to the top of the route.
