This route offers a unique contrast between its lower and upper sections.
Scramble up some broken choss for ~20 feet until you can step up and clip. The technical crux comes at and above bolt 2 with stems and side-pulls leading to a somewhat difficult third clip.
After this, the route steepens and offers great movement between spaced, positive holds all the way to the top.

Have your belayer watch you closely through the crux as you end up a bit above bolt 2 with the choss ledge not far below.


This is the right-most line at the main wall at the Tall Cliffs.
Look for the line of 5 bolts in tan rock starting ~20' from the deck.


5 bolts, chains.

This might be the most beta intensive route at the the Black Cliffs. The route description is not kidding. On my first attempt I fell trying to clip the third bolt. I spent the next couple weeks hobbling around on a black and blue ankle and unable to climb. So watch yourself. That being said, if you can figure out all the sequencey beta, this route is an absolute classic (for the cliffs). Mar 6, 2015

I have never been to the Black Cliffs. I actually consider Idaho to be a flyover state, but goddamnit, I really, really want to go climb this route now. Aug 13, 2016
Idaho is a flyover state. Nothing here worthwhile at all. We all just can't wait till we can raise enough money to move somewhere really cool. Sep 23, 2016

Peter must be bad at raising money...I moved YEARS ago... I wish I could just flyover that state and not have to always driveover it on the way to real climbing... Sep 23, 2016
