BETA PHOTO: the farthest climb uphill on the right side of the...


Scramble up 15-20 ft on easy terrain that can be 'protected' by a BD#3. The next 20 ft feature a fun mostly finger size crack. After the crack, go left around a small tree, up, and traverse right to the anchors for Black Knight. Great route! If only it was longer with more crack.


In the gully between the two main areas of Fucoidal. On the upcanyon side, go two bolt lines left of Cushions. Look for the obvious dihedral starting high to the left of the bolts ( The bolts are Black Knight, a featureless looking 12).


#3 can 'protect' the scramble (possibly stopping you from rolling down the hill after you hit the ground). One wide pod fits a #2-#3, otherwise a nut set or small cams (<=.75) are sufficient. Typical, hard to place Logan Canyon limestone. Chain anchors.

Super fun finger crack. Wish it was a bit longer.
