This is the right line of bolts above Beckeys Wall 1st 2 pitches. Approach as per Pebbles and Bambam, and climb the flake system on the far right of the starting ledge. You will climb through this into the 3 bolt line. The crux is bolted and again is a nice way to finish Beckey's Wall. Good rock with a bit of flakiness in February (probably cleaner in summer). Descend as per Pebbles and Bambam.
3 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. Some gear is needed for the initial flake system.

I am changing my rating to two stars due to me leading the entire route this time as opposed to just finishing on it (don't ask). The gear in the flake is shaky and small, but the climbing isn't too bad (5.8'ish) at that point. Only two bolts as well. That 3rd bolt is actually part of Pebbles and Bambam. More frictiony than Pebbles.

Is there any pro between the traversing ledge and the flake? I ran it out 40 feet. Maybe a 00 TCU or small offset nut in a shallow flare (I had neither). Fortunately, the climbing is easy through that section.

There's gear along and above the ledge, small stuff (00 and 0 C3s). Kind of annoying to place blindly but you can get a dozen pieces in 15' if you feel like it. Use long runners or be prepared to set-up a 3:1 haul system to pull slack.
Interesting rock and good slabbin' up high. Clip the 3rd bolt (belongs to pebble) to add some fun thin friction moves.

i got a bomber #1 camalot on the ledge about 15' right of the treed ledge and ran out the easy 5.6 ground to the first micro in the flake. All in all a worthy pitch. Now I have to get on pebbles.
