Description

This fun slab line starts directly to the right of Blackline and suffers a bit from a very scary start above a large backbreaker boulder. Lay your backpacks over it or have your belayer give a good spot so if you don't make the first clip (12ish feet off the ground) you don't go splat. Otherwise continue up following bolts through relatively easy terrain until the 5th bolt where it turns into true slab climbing. Pull through 2 more bolts and then head into the top of the Blackline crack. Pull through that to the chains!

Location

Directly to the right of Blackline this line starts between the two large trees with the first bolt 12ish feet off the ground.

Protection

7 bolts and some assorted gear up to a #1 camalot and one #3 to protect the horizontal.

I think you can plug some gear before you hit the first bolt....great line, and better that blackline propper, imo Jul 4, 2012

Wow Gittins... strong words there! You sure you want to be so bold?

Kidding.... both fantastic climbs and totally different character. There is a small TCU placement before hitting the 1st bolt. Jul 5, 2012

There is a small TCU before the first bolt but I'd still make sure your belayer is awake due to the bone breakers below. Jul 5, 2012
