Pulling the crux

Description 

His Feet Smell climbs the face 20 feet right of the gully. It climbs the cracked face to the roof and pops it right at the center. It has a reachy crux, and is worth stopping at Beachball to climb.

Protection 

His Feet Smell has a 2-bolt anchor. Small to medium gear protects it, and maybe a cam just over the roof.

Gear Alert
Supposedly the anchors are gone, however an easy trad anchor can be had.

Cams and the odd nut will protect the lower face. At the roof, there is a pin on the right side and it can be backed up with a yellow Metolius. Over the roof, at the first large crack, the rock didn't seem all that good, and it was really wide, so I ran it out to just below the top, where I placed my other yellow Metolius.

Cool roof. If you go left it is much easier. Like 10-. Going straight up like shown in the Ruckman guide is 10b/c. The holds are thin and far apart, especially to pull a roof with.

Def a fun climb, thin rock requires thoughtful placement of hands and feet and a few nice high steps. Used webbing up top around a large rock and a cam on the face of the roof to keep the top rope from slamming you hard to the right should you fall. Cool crag and super cool in the heat.

There are no anchors on this route that I could find, unless I was on the wrong route. I saw a hole where a bolt used to be though...
