Comments: I went here to do a film with Michael Strassman around 1993. We climbed with Bernd Arnold. Bernd belayed me. I was up on something that they SAID was only 5.11, I got scared about half way up and was shaking. I happen to look down and saw that Bernd was putting on belay gloves! miracously I made it to the next bolt. I then asked to be lowered :)

Comments: Great for parents! The kids have plenty of flat space to play at the base, there is 5.5s to 5.9s 100 ft away, AND BEST OF ALL the kids can rope swing on Big Moe's TR ropes in between your laps! enjoy!

Comments: I remember that the rappeling crowd was regularly visiting the Beaver Wall and it would be highly likely that they would come upon fixed draws and the draws would magically not be fixed and end up with the rappelers. TOO easy for anyone to rappel over this route, if you are on a budget, don't leave gear on the route.

Comments: This is my favorite route in the world that I never red-pointed. (Yet)

You can put the "-" behind the "5.14", but I think it IS a 5.14.

I remember when Bitter got his ascent, I tracked him down and called him and congratulated him. Fricken awesome send at any age. Whoa this might be serendipity, I'm turning 45 this year, maybe I am experienced enough now to send it!

I found the best temperature on this route was about 61 degrees. Not to hot to melt your fingers and not too cold to cramp you u... more >>
