This is a nice, sustained route up the Black Wall. Start just left of the chimney, hard climbing to the break then a tough little boulder problem at the end.


This is right of the arete of Misegination.

John, when you say start just left of the chimney, do you mean the first chimney of Double Chimney? Is this the face with tiny crimps to the left but right of Mulatto arete?

This problem is significantly easier for those with long reach.

This (I believe, John, can you clarify this?) is the harder left-hand variation to the route described as "Black Wall" in Boston Rocks v. 2

There are also 2 bolts on this. Has anyone been able to lead it clean?
