DescriptionThe climbing on this route is really quite nice. If it were longer, it would be a really good route.
1) Climb the dihedral listed below, climb through the roof and belay on a nice ledge on the left after 130 feet. 10+.
2) Step right from the ledge climb up a thin flake placing some small gear and traverse right into features leading up into a left-leaning crack. Follow that up to a more broken area and take the first crack system on the right. Run the rope out an belay. 5.10R.
3) Climb up the most fun looking ground above the belay (there are some pleasant bits), ending on a grassy ledge system. 5.8.
To exit, scramble up and right to the top of the Black Wall.
