Black and Feathered Walls
BETA PHOTO: Overview of the Black Wall, showing the left side ...
The "Black Wall" lies just left of the Great Northern Slab (i.e. The Free Area) at the Lower Town Wall. It has a dark brownish color that contrasts with the neighboring grey rock of the Free Area, and the wall is fairly uniformly vertical. The middle-right side tends to stay wet longer than the rock at the Free Area.
On the left of the Black Wall lies a shorter wall of lighter color and different texture. This wall, the Feathered Wall has a corrugated, downsloping, and sharp texture with reddish and whitish rock.
From the area just below the Great Northern Slab, walk straight towards the wall, going up and behind a large flake to reach a fairly level base. The trail should be obvious. One must do a few scrambling moves to reach the flake, but the whole approach takes only a minute or two.
