Description 

Begin the same as Forbidden Colors, but continue up flake system towards the next black streak on an arête. Difficult opening moves leads to a thin crux then balancy laybacking on the arête. A much easier version of Forbidden Colors...excellent moves, excellent rock, and very unrelenting! Bring a #4 camalot for in between the second bolt of Forbidden and the first bolt of Black Elk.

Location 

Climbs the arête just left of Forbidden. Single 60m rap.

Protection 

11 bolts
#4 camalot
Chain anchors
