6 Bolts up to chains. Route shares the start of a straight up version rated 12c and then veers off to the left. Awesome looking climb, there are three blacks streaks on the wall, hence the name. Awesome climb. Short and bouldery with two ways to do the crux. One way is a dyno and the other one is a super technical hand foot match in a pocket.

The dyno method felt good to me, about v4 as a single move, but tenuous getting to where you set up for it. A local told me a crimp I used to traverse from the alcove was not there originally; it would be a lot harder without it. Off the ground it seemed v4/5 (shared with 12c) to pretty good rest/shake at alcove, then traverse left into dyno. No more than 11- after that. Much easier to redpoint for me than resistance 13- climbs, which I mostly flail on.
