BETA PHOTO: Bean Pole is the thin line on the left...


On the far left end of the upper cliff (seperate from the rest of the cliff a bit) there are a few more often overlooked cool routes... The first one i was drawn to was the Bean Pole crack... A slightly inverted super thin fingercrack... For someone who loves fingercrack climbing (me) this one begs to be climbed...

Climb steep thin fingers to a horizontal break (crux) put in some gear and finish... A short but serious climb...


On the far left end of the upper cliff look for the thin fingercrack on the steep wall left of a nice hand crack in a corner...


Small aliens or tcu's and some small wires...

I thought it was Charlie Bentley who got the FA.

i love how in the NE bouldering guide it says put this route in there and said "boulderable?" That would be one bad ass send

This is a good short practice aid(clean) climb.

It was Charlie. IIRC to the left by ~10 feet there was a jump start to a jug that moved left from there and then back right - Dean did that.
