Description

A beautiful line, one of the best in the Bozone. Sustained crack movement! Somewhat pumpy...
After busting the "5.7" traverse at the top (I thought it was a bit harder!), you can continue up a grungy 5.7 crack to the top of the buttress, or take a newer, 5.9 bolted finish which is a bit more direct.

Location

The route is near the left end of Black Line's south face. It's the obvious crack.

Protection

Take a wide range of gear from blue TCUs to hand sized cams. A larger piece (#3 camalot?) is useful for the traverse. Protect intelligently here to alleviate drag on the last bit (especially if doing the 5.9 bolted finish). Two bolt chain anchor.
