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.


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.


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