Description

This is a relatively new route to the area; a tree at the base of this route was removed when they widened the road.

A fun start on great rock, followed by a brief slab and a good no-hands near some underclings. From there, head into a bouldery roof section with fun moves and some hard pulling! Pull up and over the lip to clip the chains.

Location

Located immediately to the left of Dust/Dirt, and to the right of Bitch.

Protection

bolts to fixed anchors.

I'm pretty sure this is the right beta, although it's possible the name is wrong? Everyone at the crag knew this route as Black Sails.

Also, the guy here:

rockclimbing.com/routes/Nor…

...claims to be the guy that bolted this. There used to be a tree at the base of this route, so it was a relatively new addition to the wall. You can see the tree in some photos lingering about here. Jul 7, 2014

The 12c I am talking about went in about 15 years ago. So it must be to the left or right of this one since it is a new line.

They have it listed as the mountain route at Rockclimbing.com, but I think it is mountaineer route. If I recall this route has a bulge in the middle, then a slab section and hard crux at the last 2 bolts. Jul 7, 2014

Confirmed--my beta is correct. This is not the mountain route. It's black sails. FA was Adam Griffith. I'm not sure what the mountaineer route is, but it is not this one.

The description is similar, however--but black sails is definitely not 12c. It might be pretty soft at 12b. Jul 8, 2014

Excellent route, techy and hard to read down low (11c ish) to a full rest into a bouldery section (scary clip with potential to tap the slab) followed by hero jug pulling to the top.
Edit: hero small hold pulling is more accurate. Aug 10, 2014

Great climbing. Agreed that the second bolt above the ledge should be a bit lower. Perhaps the FA placed it where they did to avoid some choss, who knows. A double draw would be a good idea as you don't want to blow it here. Aug 25, 2017
