|Black Wave Wall
|461 page views|
Black Wave is probably the most obvious route on the wall and takes the black streak just right of A Woman Scorned. Belay at a cool hole with a bolt and solve the low-down crux (11a) with layaways and edges to a second milder face crux ending at good holds. The closely-bolted upper wall eases on still excellent climbing to a brief rest at the break. The moderate (5.9) upper wall continues to reward.
This is another outstanding climb that is one of the best easy 5.11 routes at the Head. It is probably not as classic as some others (e.g. Dave's Dilemma) but is still close to four stars.
