Description

Black and Sassy is one of the more obscure routes on the Gold Wall, but is fairly well protected. A nice steep boulder problem at the top guards the rim.

Start to the right of Standard Forks 5.8 at a wide section of crack. Figure out the face holds that lead you to a seam with some thin wires. Move up the seam until the angle drops a bit. Continue up the crack which leads to a steep bit of weird fingers and stretchy stemming with face relief!

Location

Starts just right of Standard Forks 5.8

Protection

Small/medium wires, small/medium TCUs.

Fun route, not sure how well traveled. I found out Monday that you can leave your big gear on top; next time I will take: a #5 and, maybe a #4 Camalot for the start plus doubles to 0.75 Camalot (maybe triple yellow aliens- I place a lot of gear). May 30, 2012
