Finger- to hand-crack start, then edges and fun pockets. Route is about 30 feet right of where the trail meets the "sunny side" wall. The route forms a loose, 3-sided box with "Standing on Faith" and "Volcanic Therapy."
The anchor is easily accessible from the top; walk right along the cliff until an obvious route to the top is found.
Three bolts to two chain anchor.

Don't blow the third clip, a fall here would be ugly.

Another acceptable Black Rocks climb. Short and fun.

This was a really fun little route.
some of the pockets hold water for several days after it rains got my hands wet in a few of them.
Second the above comment blowing the third bolt would be bad but it is easy to set up a toprope.
