Comments: This is a must do alpine ridge classic! Here is a link to my pictures of my Photography FB Page

Just a note, When Sam and I did this climb we actually started on the ridge that was just to the left ( further in toward the mountain) This ridge joins into the Kamp Ridge proper about half was up.

This Climb was sooooooo good. I personally was a little nerves about the walk off because of all the comments talking about epics and what not, so I posted 6 pictures Starting from the top of Black Velvet peak of the Descent. I hope these pictures clear up any confusion about the descent and everyone can enjoy the climb and descent of Black Velvet peak. Enjoy

Comments: Got this route yesterday with all of my Utah Outsider buddies. This route still has me smilling. I can't wait to go climb it again and lead the pitches that I didn't get to. My partner and I did the whole thing with a set of C4's and Nuts. Everyone on this page seems to think that micro's are a must have.. not true. I lead the crux slab on the 3rd and it was easily protected with just a standard set of nuts and C4's. Passive Pro all the way.

Comments: Personally I thought that First pitch was very unquie and fun.. I didn't lead it. There is some pretty loose rocks and what not on the first pitch but once you hit the first chimney I thought the rock improved greatly. The Chimneys were, for me, very memorable, full body in , climbing with shoulder blades kind of stuff. It is one I would do again. Second pitch was more or less just a way to finish the route, nothing that I will remember other then some loose rock.

Comments: The 1st pitch was really dirty and vegitated but but the 2nd and 3rd pitch (which we combined) was a lot of fun. Gear placement was plentiful on the 2nd and 3rd pitch once you get in the dihedral
