Begin up an interesting section on fractured rhyolite to a small ledge. Move up and left through a large scooped-out dish, then get some fun exposure as you make your way out and around the edge onto the face (crux). Continue up the positive face until the rock turns vertical; find the buckets and clip the chains.


Center-stage of the Black Wall, which is directly across the stream from the Main Wall.

I climbed this last night for the first time in three years. I don't know why I don't climb it more often; It's pretty damn fun. And all the holds are as I remember them. I don't think anything has broken off.
The aluminum leaver biners I put up there three years ago are still there. The left one could probably stand to be replaced. Oct 7, 2010

No holds have broken, at least in the last year or two. This is a really good climb, and it deserves more traffic than it gets. Sep 19, 2010

Gets thin around the 4th bolt. Seems to be rated a bit hard. Has a hold broken loose? Fun climb. Huge jug at the end is so delightful. Jul 12, 2010
