Description

This climb goes and goes.

Climb low angle rock with interesting moves that meander slightly left on "the Deck" and culminate with the use of an awesome undercling prior to the last bit of slab on your way to the chains.

Location

Just right of "Moral Ambiguity"

Protection

9 bolts to chain anchors.

I've taken beginners here multiple times now and it is a solid fun route for newbies or a good warm up. For newbies just watch for Z-clips since this thing is like super bolted. The minor crux part could lead to a fall onto a shelf (which someone did) but its not too bad. You can easily reach the anchors for Moral Ambiguity to set up an easy TR. The second pitch Bigger Blacker Deck allows for a decent multi-pitch practice spot or just do as a single. Topping out is fun tho a little exposed. Can hike off or rap just bring a couple slings. I did have my rope get stuck after rapping so be aware of that possible pain in the ass. Dec 3, 2016
I wouldn't have put in the low anchors but it was nice you did. This gives the 5.7 climbers another route to lead. If you climb 5.9 then continue up the extension as one pitch. Nov 21, 2016
Pretty big jog to the left on a ledge. Nov 21, 2016
Found a 'biner at the base of this route (Big Black Deck) on Thursday, Sep 22. Describe it and I'll get it back to you.

This is probably 5.7 by old school lemmon standards. The underling move is well supported by great feet and your bolt is at your waist. An enjoyable climb whatever you decide to rate it. May 21, 2016
