Description 

Start on Doobieous Deliverance for one or two gear placements, then trend right up a flake to the first bolt of Black Walk. Continue trending right for the most part up a hard-to-read, sustained, and slabby line with s-p-a-c-e-d bolts. Get your head right, it is not a beginner 5.8 climb. The climb moves more to the right than you would expect, even while on the route.

Location 

Do the same start as Doobieous Deliverance, then clip the bolts to the right.

Protection 

Gear to start on D.D. then draws. The old guide makes it sound like gear is up higher, but I didn't remember any. You better bring a couple thin cams if my memory is incorrect. The anchors might be webbing.
