Description [Suggest Change]

Black & Tan follows the obvious, tan and black, vertical line up to the left side of a triangular roof on sustained and near vertical climbing.

Scramble up a short bit of loose rocks and dirt to the base of the route. A large boulder to the left of the start of the route offers a nice ledge to place your packs and gear.

Climb up a shallow dihedral to the high first bolt. Continue up the steepening rock using cobbles and pockets to surmount a small bulge. Above that, fish around for the right pockets and cobbles on steep terrain to a much-needed rest on a small diving board cobble near the 8th bolt. A few more moves on juggier terrain lead to the anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the first route you'll encounter when approaching from the parking and mine. The hangers are well camouflaged but the black/tan line to a big triangular roof is obvious.

Protection [Suggest Change]

10 bolts to a chain and Metolius rap hanger anchor. Note the length of the route--a 60m rope is probably required for lowering.
