This is excellent slab climbing. Technical slab climbing leads to a seam. When the seam ends, another section of friction climbing leads to the anchor station under the roof.


This is near the right side of the shield on black rock. This route is the 2nd line with bolts from the right side.


QDs and some small gear for the seam, bolted anchors. A 60m will not lower you all the way to the ground. Bring 2 ropes or do some downclimbing.

I imagine that the FA belongs to Kevin Rusk an Doug Waggoner, but I'm not sure. The two of them along with Greg Dennis did most of the developing up there.

That FA could be Micheal Paul.

Climbed this 2014 and have to say the top part just before the anchors is quit hard. Very thin face, I think holds have broken. Bring your A game for this one, it doesn't give up!! Loved the route.
