Beckey Route closeup. Happy knobaliciousness every...

Description 

The Beckey is the easy and fun short south side route to the summit. Class 4 @80 meters up a narrow dirt gully behind (South of) the rock to the notch of the Steeple, tie off a big boulder or 2 for a belay at the high point of the notch.

The route romps straight up the big, more solid than they look, awesome knobs and lumps directly above to the summit approx 80' above.

Descent: A 2 rope rap to the Northwest or do the new single 60 meter rap off the massive hardware on Brother Mike towards the Northeast.

Location 

Approach as for The Steeple Northwest routes to the obvious gully.

Protection 

Only need some long slings for ties offs. An ice axe would greatly reduce the sporting approach. Adventure climbing!

Adam's feet, looking down the route from the top. As depicted, we did this in our approach shoes. Rock shoes are overkill:-)
