Black Water ascends the steep, black water-streaked wall to the right of the Pleasant Pheasant area. Climb up a ramp to the start of the hard climbing or direct at .12c. There are perhaps three distinct cruxes on Black Water. The route is thin, crimpy and sustained. A super classic and solid at the grade. Usually wet until July.


Black Water is located at the bottom of the stairs, just to the right of the Pleasant Pheasant area at Petrifying Wall.


10 Quickdraws. Fixed Anchors.

seemed shorter than 120 feet. Used a 70 m rope and had loads left. A 60 m should work, but tie knots! I think it had more than 10 draws, too. I want to say 14 + anchors... currently no fixed draws for the chains. Jul 13, 2015
