Amber, 5.10c
2nd Pitch- 160’- 5.10c/ This is one of the finer pitches in Black Velvet Canyon. A 5.12 variation follows the bolt line up and left from the belay. The original version moves back right and down to start in the 5.9 hand crack. Climb the crack up until you can follow several bolts up and left at the grade (5.10c) making a few precarious moves to enter the flaring chimney above. Make burly moves up the flaring chimney/flake which has a bolt on the left wall, but protects in the crack well. Once through this physical and fun section, continue up easier and chossier ground moving left over the corner high above to find the fixed belay/rappel on a small ledge below a chossy corner.
Amber, 5.10c, 4 Pitches, Wholesome Fullback Buttress, Whiskey Peak, Black Velvet Canyon, Red Rock, NV, November, 2010
