Rockfax Description
The flared rib and narrowing final black groove is a stunning line that involves some fine but serious climbing. Start at a large block right of the pinnacle at the start of Hiddenite. Get established below a small overhang and move up to a tiny jutting rib. The difficult and sustained wall above (peg) leads to the base of the black groove. Climb the serious groove heading left at its end to finish. © Rockfax
