Climb over buldge with cool pockets to a vertical face and techncal climbing above. The crux is going between the 2nd and 4th bolts with several other tricky sections above.


Fourth route from the left on the wall.


8 bolts plus closed cold shuts

The roof section is really fun with positive pockets. Mike have you considered bolting a line to the right of this?

Zach, I cleaned a lot of the route to the right and there is anchors on it. It was a little hard for my liking, but it has some very cool features.

I've actually put in a lot of laps on this route over the years. I wouldn't call the Black Betty Wall a destination per say, but it is a fun place to climb if you have a limited amount of time. I see a lot of chalk here now, hope people are enjoying this place as much as I have.
