Description:

The Black Wall faces southeast - it is to the LEFT of the Ship's Prow. The Black Wall is between Mulatto Arete (on the far left of the face) and the corner to the right, which is off route. Thin! There are, as always, easier/harder ways up making this area great for climbers of all levels.

Descent Options:

Follow the trail down to the right

4 out of 5 stars Black Wall

Very tough route... Follow the line described in Boston Rocks... There are so many variations so hard to grade the route can be 5.9+ to 5.10C.
