This climb was reestablished in February 2015.
The ascent was in response to a line of bolts that recently appeared on the wall, terminating at a sport anchor mid-face. I led past the hardware, placing my own gear, and completed the line to the huge ledge above the corner. A second pitch took us to the rim, where we walked off the back. I returned a few days later and removed the bolts while on rappel.
Black Wall is a historic trad venue. It's important we respect this place and the adventurous style of climbing it represents.

This is a very exciting addition to Sespe Gorge! Thank you, Alex.
It's worth noting that this route connects with the upper section of the Sespe Classic McTavish.
