Climb Black Hole but stop on the belay ledge. If you veer left on the upper part to the crack, this is the 10d variation; however, it is actually a little easier than keeping the line on the 10b variation if you just use the crack for about two moves then return to the 10b variation.

Descent Options:

Lower off from two belay anchors.

3 out of 5 stars challenging and variety

The start is challenging, stem and chimney up a huge split. The crack is great but quickly ends in a bulging crux with chossy slopers. Veered left to the crack on "Focus" then back to some better holds on the 10b variation. Had to take about 3 times.
