This is the extension to Soy Beefcake; goes up the headwall above the anchor. It's a bit crumbly above the ledge with the anchors, but the climbing above that is fun.


Just right of Walt's Wall. Start behind a rock.

It should be known the nut on the first bolt above the anchors is only on finger tight. If your'e planning on doing this, bring a wrench.

I'm told the crux on this one has gotten harder as a key foothold has broken off. I'd never been on it before this though.

Edit: as of 6/2010, the route is totally doable at the 10+/11- grade and pretty dang fun.

I'm sure the big hold at the crux pulled off this route. I led it with the hold on, being really thankful it was there, and then my second pulled it off a few minutes later.
