BETA PHOTO: Blackheart route line with bolts


This along with Blackout are located on the nice looking "3-tiered" face on the far left side of the Ken Black formation. Easily visible from the road. This is the lefthand line passing a couple of bolts to a two bolt anchor/rap


A few cams and bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

On top rope, opted to traverse right and finish on Blackout. A bit more exiting finish, it was a fun way to throw in a traverse and the final bulge, but with good holds, and some more slab moves.

This route starts at the large rock scar on the left end of the crag. Some funky moves on poor rock get you past the first bolt and then you can slug in some 1"-2" pro in the horizontal crack. Keep moving up and left past another bolt and easier climbing to some more pro (2" stuff) in the next horizontal.
Two bolts with chains on top. I TR'd it.

note: The Stackhouse beta photo for this little crag is not accurate.

I found Blackheart to be stout for the grade of .10b
