Once You Black, You'll Never Go Back, 5.10a. ...

Description 

Starts with small pockets that get increasingly bigger and bigger until small, white appendages are simply not good enough anymore.

Go from overhung to slabby! Crux requires more beta than strength. A good beginner climb for those who want to experience a hard start with a mellow finish...yet still retains the qualities of a burly, pumpy warm-up for more advanced climbers who like big holds between big moves.

A short, stout version of every other climb at The Slim Shady Area!

Location: Rappers Delight Wall 

Located on a black, slabby face just to the left of The Slim Shady Pillar.

Protection 

Take six quickdraws.
