Description Suggest change

"Blackie" climbs up the right side of the face, left of the crack/gully, and 30 feet left of "Welcome to Echo." Begin climbing below an arching, left facing, crescent shaped flake where the rock changes from tan to black. Climb up the flake on side-pulls, edges, and small pockets on wonderful black rock. From the top of the flake move up and right on horizontals and pockets. Higher pull through a bulge and continue to the top, and the anchor, on positive edges and pockets. In case you're wondering the name memorializes a former dog companion as does Sasha and Walter. 

Location Suggest change

This is right-most of three routes on the black and tan face of the western-most buttress of The Upper Tier.
