The Idarado Mine owns large portions of land, including the access road, that they have been kind enough to maintain partially and allow the public to use. Obey the rules and keep a low profile to ensure continued access.
DescriptionBlack & 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.
