Looking south from the NRA Boulder, Black Mountain...

Description 

A collection of boulders surrounding one large "Summit Block" boulder. Problems here tend to be shady due to the Summit Block and some pine trees.

A notable problem in the area is NRA (V7).

Getting There 

As you're approaching the Summit area, these boulders will be the leftmost set in a more or less flat area, surrounding the very tall Summit Block. Descending downhill (while keeping the Summit Block to your left) will take you to The Visor.

Start low, go to a scoop, then to a "steering wheel." Head left along the lip and top-out near NRA is the preferred method I have seen. Another option is to mantle and ascend slab for the top-out. This method has shut down climbers that have ascended NRA to the left though it is listed in the Dr. Topo. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
