Description [Edit]

Man in Black is a fun route with enjoyable, slightly overhung climbing on jugs to the first roof. At the roof, a tricky crux sequence involving a slot that is not as good as you would like, a deep two finger pocket, and a decent edge interrupt the easy climbing found below. After pulling the crux, pull onto a slab section with good holds, and pull past the second roof into a nice dihedral to clip the anchors.

Location [Edit]

This route is located further left of routes Bonnie and Clyde and directly to the right side of Swinging Richards. The start of the route is directly below an obvious roof feature.

Protection [Edit]

6 bolts with anchors.

Guidebook says 5.12a, but there's no way. Once you figure out the beta, it's like a V3 roof problem. 5.11c/d is fair. Mar 27, 2017

Great example of a height-dependent grade. At 5'6", I was able to move through the crux over the roof with a dynamic move; however, my 5'2" friend had to find an incredibly difficult alternative. The route is 12a in the book and 11c in MP, but it probably depends on your body type. More importantly, it is an extremely fun route. Be sure to get on it if you're on this wall. Jul 17, 2017
