Description Suggest change

Start directly under the arch of the "brow". Open pockets create an easy start. This climb has you moving left, going right leads to the another climb.

Once you transition left, you hit the crux and the few tough moves. There's a left hand finger pocket on the face of the rock above the brow. There's a undercling in top arch of the brow. These will let you set your feet and get to the "problem".

It's a cruxy...long...reach from the finger pocket to the U-shaped "ledge" above the brow. 6-footers should be able to reach the lichen covered 2 finger flake in the middle of the "U". Those of shorter stature, this is a lot larger of a problem. I had to make a big move and throw to it to get to the center flake.

After the flake are some more crimpers until you can set your feet. A triangular jug sits above the "U", and after that, it's all big pockets again to the top.

Location Suggest change

This is the far left hand climb of C-Section before the rock scramble to the top access. The start is at the base of the boulders, next to the fallen tree.
The route starts up the blackened water line, giving the black arch its name, Black Brow.

Protection Suggest change

Set a toprope with 2 anchors with chains set.
