(Lower) Black Wall.


This has thin face climbing; the inside corner is off-route. It can be linked with Upper Black Wall.


This is in the Ship's Prow area. Walk off (climber's right).


2 bolts (1 in Lower, one in Upper Black Wall).
2 bolts as top anchor. You probably want to TR this one.

Either some holds have broken or this is seriously sandbagged. I don't see any possible way without an ape index off the charts to get past the horizontal seam without using the corner to the right.

That being said, fantastic sustained thin face climbing, reminiscent of Ladder Line at Quincy Quarries, though more sequency and bouldery throughout.

You're right. Rainbow is just out of the corner. BW is 11b or so and stays between the corner and the arete.
