This is the large lightening bolt shaped crack on the climbers left side of the black lakes crag


This is one of the farthest left (when looking at the cliff from the base) routes on the wall. Look for the splitter big zigzag crack.

This route is super fun but could use some cleaning. Wear a helmet and consider breaking it into two pitches to mitigate rope drag.

This climb now has rap bolts at the top (not visable from the base) and I spent a lot of time cleaning it (wear a helmet anyways). You're welcome!
