Climb the offwidth which turns into a squeeze chimney which gets wider until reaching a ledge below a roof and a single bolt anchor.


This route is the offwidth/chimney system 40 feet right of Teeter Totter.


On the first ascent I only got one small cam in about 5 feet before the anchor. You could probably get a very large cam in just off the ground, but it wouldn't do much good. Tube chocks may protect the bottom 25 feet or so which is the crux.

On the first ascent of this I had a nice, bleeding cut on my ankle which put blood stains on the right wall of the crack. That is the reason for the name Black Blood. When I came back this weekend, the blood stains were still there! If you climb this route, you may want to bring a bolt kit and put in another anchor bolt as I only drilled one. I will try to get back shortly and re-due the anchor. When I do I will update this post.
