From Evan Hau via the TABVAR Facebook page on August 21, 2013:
New and improved. Glad to see people climbing here again
Blackheart Amphitheatre Summer 2015 Topo (update from Marcus Norman)
Blackheart Amphitheatre has a history of reconnaissance, route building attempts, aid ascents and looser rock. Expect cerebral routefinding on bands of alternating excellent and not-so-excellent rock. It is advisable to wear a helmet until these routes see enough traffic. It is also advisable to have a full 70m rope for all longer routes.
