BETA PHOTO: Route follows the black water streak up the middle...


Start with easier climbing up a cool, blocky pillar. At the top of the pillar, mantle up onto a big ledge. Traverse to the right side of the ledge, where the harder climbing begins.

Leaving the comfort of the ledge, climb through the black water streak using hidden crimps, good feet and some creative body positioning.

Great climbing throughout, but overall quality is probably two stars because of the disparity in difficulty and the huge ledge.


On south face of the crag. When approaching the crag, take the first right hand spur trail uphill to the base of the pillar.


Bolts to leaver biners

The ledge is protected a little weirdly - overbolted because I had placed a top rope working bolt, and later added a lead bolt nearby, and one of the bolts may need to be removed.
