Scott Beguin on Good


This route is Good. Begin 8 feet right of Evil. This route is also route #4 in the overview photo.

The route climbs on excellent quality rock on large edges that all slope down, making the route feel insecure and pumpy. If these edges were flat or incut the route would be 5.8. A few tricky moves over small roofs lead to a somewhat contrived left-wards traverse to the last bolt (which is shared with "Evil"). Finish atop the column at a 2-bolt chain anchor.

These routes stay shady until ~3pm (DST).


4th bolted line approached on the left side. Route #4 in overview photo, between Evil and Bush in a Blender.


Bolts. Though the last bolt and the anchors were formerly shared with Evil, this route now has own anchor as of summer '07. Nothing is shared with Evil.

I can't take credit for this one. I believe the FA was done jointly by Ken Kisiel, Scott Beguin, and Denny Newell.

I was contacted by Scott Beguin, who noted Scott Beguin, Ken Kisiel, and Billy Butler.
