Description 

A route characterized by variety, Bete Noir starts with some easy climbing to tricky face climbing involving a high heal hook. Past this section, some climbing gets you to a short bolt protected slab (crux) followed by a burly jug haul out the overhang.


Location 

75 feet to the right of the Yellow Matter Buttress, 5 feet to the left of Dave Jone's Locker


Protection 

All of the hard moves are very well protected with bolts. Bring a standard rack of cams to protect between bolts.

I'm 5'2". The overhang bolt looked impossible to reach from the ramp below. Any short people have experience with this?
