Yeah, I like the beard, as it gives you character and a bit of grrrrrrrowl.

How about some beta? What's the hold like that you're shooting for?

I'm going for a jug (you can kind of see it in the shadow). The things that made it hard for me were that by this point on the route I was pumped, the sloper that I'm on wasn't that good, and the feet here suck (my right foot must have popped 3 or 4 times before I finally got the move my first time on the route, and my left foot is basically pasted on nothing).

It's a cool route. Before you get to this part there is a fairly long (by Black Cliffs standards) and sustained technical dihedral, and after this move there are still a few more big reaches to good holds on the overhanging face above. All the top stuff would be easy on the ground, the trick is getting to it without too much of a pump.
