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 pitch features fingers through hands jamming, excellent stemming stances, and of course, the two tiered roof at the top which delivers the crux of the route.
Hard to miss on the climbers right side of the Main Amphitheater. A #3 and a #.75 protect the blocky entrance into the stem box. The excellent gear, steepness, and overall vibe of the pitch make it a great first route to do at the Waterfall.
(2) each #.3 through #.5, (3) each #.75 and #1, a #2 is useful, though kind of tight at the first roof, and a #3 is good for a first piece at the start. A few medium wires are also nice to have. 2 bolt anchor with steel Draco biners.
