Approaching the anchors on "Black Tide"
"Black Tide" ascends the prominent black water streak on the right side of the Left Flank, between "B-line" and "Espresso." Positive holds lead to a lower angle section at mid-height. Pockets and small edges on the steep black flake lead to a horizontal and stemming to reach the 2-ring Fixe anchor on the right wall.

Can be wet near the top after a rain. One should watch out for loose rock on this route.

Nice long, easy moderate climb. Loose stuff is cleaning up with increased traffic. Stick to the face & flake for more fun factor. Crawling into the corner makes clipping the anchor very awkward.

some guide books say this route is only 11 bolts. The route is 12 bolts with 2 ring anchors at the top. Make sure you bring enough equipment

Some guidebooks? What guidebook is this climb in, other than on rockclimbing.com and Mountain Project? Both state that "Black Tide" has 12 bolts & an anchor.
