Description

As of July 2018, Black Streak has received a make over. The old wonky bolts are gonzo.  In their place are 9 glue-in Wave bolts and a new anchor. It climbs much better. Before this upgrade one would have to place gear in the left facing corner, then run it out passing 5 suspect bolts. The current set up is a far more civil affair.  

Start the route where the approach trail arrives at the cliff. Instead of heading into the left facing corner crack, as the route was previously climbed, zig-zag up the easy slab to a glue in wave bolt.  A tricky move past this first bolt gets you off and running up the black streak. Cool holds and technical climbing lead you past 8 more glue-in bolts until the last dash to the ledge and a new 2-bolt anchor and chain. While the route is 36 meters, you can just get down with a 60 meter rope if you pendulum to the right on rappel to where the ground comes a bit higher up the cliff.  A wonderful line of bullet granite.

Location

This route starts at the west end of the cliff. The first sport route one sees when hiking in.
