Description

This beautiful black slab offers 60 feet of fun, cerebral pocket climbing interrupted by 20 feet of brutal thin edges and shallow pockets.

Begin with easy scrambling to a short section of large sinker pockets to reach a small bulge at a horizontal break. An awkward mantle gains more good pockets, followed by big spans to reach a series of rails trending up and left. The crux begins working past the fourth bolt. Micro edges, pitiful ripples, and perhaps a dyno or two lead to a good shake at a horizontal break near the 6th bolt. One more intimidating but not-too-bad boulder problem clears the slight bulge below the anchor.

Location

Climbs the long black slab on the right face of the Apogee Pending dihedral.

Protection

6 bolts to 2BA. The 5th bolt is about 12" too high and therefore difficult for short folks to reach unless the draw is in place.
