A variation of Pearl Drops, Black Pearl starts atop boulders on the right side. It climbs off the boulders to join Pearl Drops at its third bolt.


3 bolts to a two bolt anchor with slings/fixes biners shared with Pearl Necklace.

While the climbing quality is good, I give this a bomb because it should not even exist as an independent line. It bypasses the first 30' of pearl drops and climbs NO different terrain, starting at its 3rd bolt - weak sauce. **** in the Vogel guide, wtf?! Don't short-change yourself, start from the bottom on PD Dec 15, 2014
FA was Alan Bartlett and Dave Bengston, ca. 1990 Sep 9, 2016
