Setting up for the crux of Black Hole Sun.

Photo ...

Description 

Start in the middle of a vertical, brown wall. Nice pockets and crimps take you to the first clip. The crux is working up on delicate feet and less than desirable hands, past a slight bulge. Finish straight up on easier, yet sometimes delicate, terrain, to a two-bolt anchor below a big roof, shared with Razor Burn (aka Stewart's Slab). Rappel to descend.


Location 

This is the first bolted line to the right of On the Mushroom.


Protection 

2 bolts, bolted anchor

Two bolts?

Yup, two bolts. But the climb is safe; the bolts are where you need them. In the first pic, I'm at the first bolt. In the second pic, I'm at the second bolt. Not long after the second bolt you enter cruiser territory and decking would pretty much require jumping from the anchor. ;-)
