|Warm Up Wall
A phenomenal route! This climb, along with Astro-Pop, Winger and Mary Jane are probably the leading contenders for the best 5.11b in Spearfish Canyon! Get on this climb! You will not regret it! Again, Blake Workman has delivered us another fine line with and nice, warm-up start, a cruiser middle that then leads to a crux which ends with a HUGE (Thank You Jesus!) bird's nest pocket! How does he manage to find these things?!
The climbing ain't over after the huge salvation hold though, you still got the anchors! Choose a sequence to a really cool, hidden pocket or try something else that probably won't work.
This won't be an easy onsight but once the beta is all worked out you will find yourself returning to Black Rainbow time and time again!
After the long, uphill hike that leads to road in which The Darkside is located, this will be the very first climb off the trail if you can find it tucked back in the trees. If you miss it, walk about 50 to 100 feet to the immediate left of Princess, I Wanna Leaha and Skywalker. Go up a hill and underneath a fallen tree. The black streak down the middle makes the climb rather unmistakable.
8 bolts. Open shut anchors.
Black Rainbow. A great album by Coheed and Cambria...
