Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>


This is the left most line on the wall. Its designated as .10+ left of the .9 chimney on Laine's topo. The line follows a varied and slightly overhanging finger to fist crack (taking the right hand branch of the crack) before turning a slab and heading up to the chains. The anchors appeared along with several others several months earlier, but in our exploration of the crag it had never appeared to be climbed. It was just as dirty when climbed in May as it was in the fall of 2013 when it was toproped. If there was an earlier ascent please let me know and I'll make the change.

Speaking of dirty, with some traffic and effort, this thing will clean up into a 3 star classic steep crack climb and may become a little easier. It will make the hike out to Babylon all the more worth while. There is a left branch O/W variation that looks classic as well that to my knowledge has remained unclimbed on lead.
