Im looking for info on these bad boys.  HWall has some info out there, but La Visage to Paint it Black seems to have nothing on the web about it.

Anyone know if it has even seen a second? (I am sure it has, but...)

Anyone have info or know anyone who does?

hit me up and lets scheme, I will trade full write-up for a little info!

Pretty sure climbing inside the rim is illegal at Crater Lake.

really?

Their laws page seems to be in need of some updates...

I didn't see any signs blocking the obvious trail from the road to the formation I was eyeballing.

any insight would be helpful, thx

I'm back. Alive and well.  Absolutely awesome route.  I would  say one of the best wall routes i have climbed.  The Colorado boys have been missing out on a gem for years. 

But it's the Black.  I am required to say its scary, loose and sharp and that there is nothing good in that canyon.  ;)

Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.
