BETA PHOTO: Black Bluff West Face topo.


Jam or lieback an easy hand/fist crack (5.8) to a stance then move right and climb the thin seam past four bolts until the angle eases and you can move left to join Slap and Tickle for it's last two bolts and anchors. Quality.


Just right of Slap and Tickle.


Gear to 3.5", 6 bolts, anchors (shared with Slap and Tickle)

easily possible to set up a TR, just be careful over the edge setting it up, or tie off to a boulder to be more safe.
