Description 

The start is shared with Clean Green Dream. Climb up the block to the bolt-protected starting roof. Pull this into a finger crack. Clip an optional bolt out to the left (part of the Dirty Black Nightmare start), join the namesake black streak, and step up to gain a good rest below the bolt-protected thin crux. Continue up the streak or just next to it, following bolts generally straight up. You'll want some gear in a diagonal crack up high, just before the last bolt. Set a belay when the angle eases.

The next step after Clean Green Dream. Black Streak has bolts in great places on all the 5.10 sections. This is a great "1st 5.10" at TP.

Location 

Same start as Clean Green Dream, Black Streak begins up a block below a bulge toward the right side of Mosaic Wall. The namesake black streak is obvious. A couple of nice granite boulders for lounging on are at the base.

To descend: traverse to the Bienvenidos 2-bolt anchor and rap with a single 60m rope, or walk off farther to the east.

Protection 

4-5 bolts, a few nuts and cams (up to #2 camalot).
