Great route with some gutsy first moves. Route begins on the high end of the slopping rock. Starts out on some small holds to clip the first bolt. DON'T FALL... The Start of this climb is key and give it the "R" rating. Once the first bolt is clipped move up through some solid holds to the second bolt. At this point it is smooth sailing and a solid climb.

Make sure to Anchor the Belayer into the rock....


Located around the corner from The Man in Black. Climb up the sloping rock to anchor in the belayer.


5 bolts, fixed anchors...

Is this really an "R" rated climb? The belay ledge is huge and would be difficult to fall off of even if you did, for some reason, miss the first clip.
