Black and Tan has become a steadfast classic in the line up of Waterfall 5.10’s, if not THEE classic. This all natural gear line features fingers through hands jamming, excellent stemming stances, and of course, the two tiered roof at the top. The crux of the route may be in the middle stemming portion or at the roofs, depending on your height.
Hard to miss on the climbers right side of the Main Amphitheater, right of the black falls. A #3 and a #.75 protect the blocky entrance into the stem box. The great rock quality, excellent gear, steepness, and overall vibe of the pitch make it a great first route to do at the Waterfall.
