If you look closely you will glean some Beta from this photo....it makes the crux considerably easier. But I'm not going to reveal what it is, exactly.

Photo is by Marc Vilaplana Traveria.

1st I love this climb!!! What a awesome pic! you guys did an awesome job getting the pic and the flash! The beta looks like a kneebar to me??? I'm stoked to get out there again and thrash through the wide hands section before this awesome crux spot!

The really crazy thing about this photo is that he's still got a couple of #3 camalots on his harness!!

Chris,
You're not supposed to give the Beta away! I barely knew the guy taking this photo. There was zero set up, he was just climbing in a party ahead of me.

Hey Charles..I had 6, but found 4 to be plenty. I have fairly big hands and found the "wide hands" section to be very solid. In fact I found the whole route to be pretty solid!

Cheers,

josh

Kneebarring would have been nice... I recall desperate undercling on skittery calcite flake to mini dyno.
