Topher following pitch one.

All faces of Beacon Rock except the route “Stone Soup” are closed. Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


This climb starts in a corner about fifteen feet below and to climber's left of the snag ledge anchors. The route can be easily identified by the three fixed pins lodged in the seam at the back of the corner. The first pitch, which is 5.10a, climbs this corner using mostly stemming moves and some face holds on the right-hand arete. When possible climb over the left-hand arete and finish up another crack to the ledge with the Jill's Thrill anchor. You may then optionally continue up a second pitch consisting of a 5.10b thin crack before again joining up with Jill's Thrill higher up.


Standard Rack to 1.5", Three draws for fixed pins

The second pitch for this route is short and from the looks of the vegetation and lichen, rarely climbed. The pins are sketchy and backing them up with smaller cams basically eats up the holds. Not in character with the first pitch.
