Black Death is the choss climbers' start to the outstanding Obelisk. Start on the opening pitch of Pervertical Sanctuary, and trend left, towards the obvious chimney (~60m from Broadway). Climb more or less directly up for another ~90m ending with a ramp at the start of the Obelisk splitter (~150m total).

Be prepared for lots of gardening, choss, and dangerous loose blocks. There are no established rappel options aside from D7, so one must continue into the Obelisk or adjacent routes.


Begin as for Pervertical Sanctuary.


A standard rack.
