Climber on Velvet Gloves (5.10b)

Description 

Velvet gloves is the right-most climb on the main face of Black Beaty Wall. It is easily identified by the double hand-crack system down low. The cracks run away from each other as you get higher. Follow the left crack, through the flared crux. Afterwards, the crack becomes less consistant with a few wide sections punctuated with more hands. Keep going 'till you hit the anchors!


Protection 

Gear to two inches. Bolts with chains atop the crack

Incredible climb. Great pro, awesome crack. My friend rightly pointed out that this climb would have a mile long line were it in the valley.
