And lo, the angels wept...for they were sandbagged...cuz they were pussies!

Claw and scratch your way up a heavenly black slab! Enjoy a hard move right off the deck using slopey pockets and a side pull that you gotta have faith in. Hike up those feet on tiny ill-begotten pockets, strain to stand up, and enjoy a good rest after clipping the second bolt.

Now it gets interesting! Use a bunch of small as hell side pulls, and some decent not-so-sharp as hell crimps, to gain the stairway to heaven by hiking up those feet and rolling onto your toes to get set up for some big reaches. REACH FOR THE HEAVENS! Some of those crimps are hella far away. The entire rest of the climb is probably the crux despite some meager rests and one chance to clear your conscious before committing to some gym-nasty technical moves. Enjoy the jug at the anchors, its the only one you'll get.

Those that love crimpy slab climbs should get on it. Those that suck at crimpy slab climbs better get on it again and again and again until they love crimpy slab climbs.

Gotta have shade!

To the left and up the hill from Blind Faith. Unfortunately, those climbers trucking up to the Trail of Tears/Muel Train/Gully of Bib area to find shade in the early mornings of summer might be disappointed to find this climb in the sun until about noon.

GET ON THIS! This is a top candidate for the best climb I have ever done. Incredible movement on a sick slab. If you have done Black Slabbath this is the next thing to do. I dont think its necessarily harder (as some believe), but I definitely had to do some bigger moves on it. Don't overlook this climb and get on it! Aug 11, 2017
