This has fun fingers to fist climbing on a face crack and in a corner to work your way out a short roof and clip the chains.


This is the obvious, slabby corner directly [right] of the bolted black streak (I'll Be Black). It requires the same "4th" class scramble to the ledge to belay as I'll Be Black.


Standard rack of cams to 3" and stoppers will suffice, a #4 is optional.

Note that this climb is right of I'll Be Black, not left of it.

The chains at the top were a little off-putting- long studs sticking way out of the rock, a stack of washers below and above each chain, and the chains themselves looked like they came out of a hardware store rather than from a supplier of climbing or safety equipment. The whole setup had a distinctly home-made look to it, not very confidence inspiring. My partner and I found ourselves wondering how long the anchors would last before they corroded with moisture working its way in between all those washers.
