A four-pitch bolt-protected face climb up a basalt dyke. Crux is at the final bolt on the final pitch. Juggy climbing or moderate difficulty in high exposure at the top of the Grand Wall. If finishing the Grand Wall, the Upper Black Dyke is the easiest way to the top of the wall. The rock is not as solid as granite but good enough.


The climb begins on Bellygood Ledge, which can be reached by climbing The Grand Wall, Milk Road, Freeway, Europa, or any other route on the Grand Wall, Dihedrals, or Tantalus Wall. Alternatively, one can approach via the backside trail then follow the Bellygood trail (tricky to find the turn-off).

Descent: walk down the backside trail.
