Black Beans

5.6, Trad, 80 ft,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: Tim Sluiter & Dylan Thomas, May 2019
Vermont > Black Mountain > Main Cliff

Description

Start at the toe of the buttress, just right of the arete of Frijoles Negros.

Wander across the featured face to the top. Sometimes tricky.

Slung tree for now at the top, I left a couple biners for rappelling the route. Check the webbing if you use it.

 Gear anchor available to the right if you don't trust the tree.

Route will be dirty until it sees traffic, which will be rare.

Location

Start at the toe of the buttress across from Dirty Dreams/Black Dreams.

Protection

Standard rack up to 3". Doubles of small->finger-sized could be useful.
