The first ascent of Beat the Meat.


This is the varied splitter to the left of the 5.9 dihedral handcrack (called Incredible Spam Crack). Climb the crack till it shuts down and forces a slab move out left to the anchors.


A variety of cams from TCUs to #3 Camalot, I think.

Climbs better than it looks. Good jamming and OW, with plenty of feet features. Way longer than 120 feet. Prolly 150-160. Variety pack gear, starting at yellow metolious (0.75 in), with extra off-fingers and thin hands pieces.... running through the big stuff.. One each 4-6 camalots will get the job done, but you won't be sewing it up. Did it with nothing bigger than a #4 friend and had to do a 40ish foot runout at the end. Difficult move to gain the anchors is ridonkulous with all that rope out. Might be possible to descend with one 70 if you swing over to the anchor on Incredible Spam...but haven't tested this to be sure.
