Rich Purnell on Pitch Black--Vail, CO m9films

Description 

Very long running through solid and not so solid bands of that funky Vail rock...every type of climbing ..technical, juggy and ending on a small pillar to 40 feet of ice. This route can be found left of the Designator and [bisects Teriebel] Traverse.


Protection 

9 bolts.

This was taken a few weeks after the curtain fell 2001 (which happens every year). The curtain falls then reforms about 2 feet away from its original position, that is if your careful not to break it loose again. Yep, it's a stretch but if you just climb the ice a couple feet you have a great screw placement. <br />
