This route shares a blocky start with Poaching in the Sun, then immediately heads left to the roof. Pick holds wisely as underneath the roof is brittle. Climb the face staying on the left side of the face until the crux 3/4 the way up on the lighter brown face. Pull through the thinner holds to gain better hands and eventually top out.


This route follows the left side of the face of Black Wall. Top out and hike back to the base.
