Going for the face in beta.


Be prepared to scratch your head at this one. Start on the obvious flat rail and make you way up the corner.


This is the first problem you come to when you arrive at the Corkscrew Boulder.

Every year the crimp up at about 7 feet gets smaller.

I think ultra-super-technical V6 or regular old V7 is more like it, but I can only send it with the face out 360 beta, which I hear is harder. My legs are a little short for the facing in variation.

FA Jeff Achey, late '80s, early '90s. JA discovered the "corkscrew" beta and called it V6. "The Main Squeeze" the compression arete to the right when facing this problem is his as well and goes at about V8.
