Start in the depression in the wall and climb the corner crack, clearing a few small ceilings along the way to the top. There are jugs a plenty through most of the route so you'll find lots of good stances. Belay off one of the many trees at the top. This is one of those really fun climbs where every where you wish there was a bomber hold, there pretty much is. This would probably make a great climb to "climb out" of the Lower Beer Walls if it's free.
Start: Mid-way up the steep unappealing gully on the far (North Western) end of the Lower Beer Walls approximately 75 feet climber's left of Rockaholic.
Descent: No fixed anchors, so walk off down the approach trail into the Lower Beer Walls.
Singles up to C4 #3 size, with doubles in #1 and #2 C4 size. Tree anchors at top, no fixed anchors.

Fun Route! Don't pass this one by as a just a dirty corner. Lapped it four times and climbed it a different way each time. Great route for practicing various techniques.

Doesn't look like much from the bottom but has some awkward, thoughful moves and variations. A bit pumpy if you stray too far from the crack, trick is to follow the crack and stem as much as possible. Probably a bit harder than 5.6 In contrast Afternoon Delight was underwhelming, which gets twice as many stars in the guide. (?)

Fun route, stay in the crack and don't wander onto the face if your leading otherwise it gets a lot harder with potential for a big whipper!
