Lusty Vicar begins just around the corner from the main face of Black Beauty Wall. It starts with an EASY (~5.9) pull over an overhang then ascends a not-steep flared crack. As you go up, the crack gets thinner and the climbing steeper.
The crack closes up as the wall gets vertical. There's a small pocket to reach to higher in the seam. This part is where the rating 'serious' is deserved.
After the pocket, you hit the crux - pulling through the roof via a flared jamcrack.
Gear to 2". Chains up top. Suspect pro through the easy part of the climb but good pro at the crux.
As with all Black Beauty climbs, you may set a top rope by rappelling down from the anchors atop the cliff band or after climbing another route on the wall.
