Supermassive Black Hole
<< Imagine Dragons < Black Holes and Revelations | Black Hole Sun > The Quarryman >>
A stellar line up this wall - something of a safe adventure. Start below a bolted groove.
1) 7a, 25m. Climb the groove past many bolts. When the holds run out, make a move right onto the blank wall. A crucial foothold here can remain damp, but the bolt can provide aid past this. Regain the groove above and pull onto the ledge and belay.
2) 6b, 12m. A short pitch that links up and right, past bolts, to a second groove.
3) 6c, 25m. The second groove looks just as hard as the first but is a little easier. A similar step right to the first pitch bypasses a blank section of the groove before regaining it again and following it to the belay below a final dolerite slab.
4) 6b, 12m. Follow the bolts up the slab via some quartz pockets and belay off fence posts and a thread.

The topo in the guide incorrectly marks the position of the bolt belay and also the start of the 2nd pitch.
