Nice job Eric! This is a great route, but a large piece of rock at the second bolt is loose. Also, there is a loose flake in the dihedral/groove at the top of Scorpions. So be careful.

The holds start out quite good, but around the 4th bolt it gets really thin. Then I assume it goes left after the fifth bolt to get to the top of Scorpions for the anchor.

Black Pearl is a really entertaining route and an awesome addition to the Lower Peanuts Wall. The route is very well protected, but the extremely thin and delicate nature of the climbing keeps you on edge for sure. Difficult and cryptic moves lead up and left from the fourth bolt. Some very demanding footwork and unique body position is needed to pass into the end of Scorpions. There is a set of anchors above this climb (for Scorpions) that is not visible from the ground. Awesome route!
