Black Wave is a massive boulder with problems lining each side. The rock quality is consistently good, and the landings are for the most part good as well.

Any ascent requires a downclimb or a jumpdown of the boulder.

Getting There 

From the third dirt pullout, head downhill to the east for about 50 yards, and the boulder will be visible. Reference the page map for its exact location.
