BETA PHOTO: Lima Bean?


The first pitch is fun with its slippery friction crux through the watercourse. There is a convenient bolt belay to rap from. Continuing up is an adventure with the classic Lakeview finish.

This description varies somewhat from the one I had. It said something about a slab some bushes and an overlap? Here is what I found

P1 5.8 90, From below the bean climb about 20 feet reaching an overlap this is passed more easily on the left side. Then move back right to the watercourse friction climbing past two bolts to a bolt belay in the bean.

P2 5.7 (5.5R) 180, Head straight up through a break in an overlap with good gear then run out the easy face above aiming for a cave. Belay under the cave with big gear or to the right with small gear, or something else.

P3 Finish up Lakeview


Start below the Lima bean shaped depression on the right side of the slabs

You can rap from a bolted belay on P1 with a single 60m, recommended, otherwise finish up Lakeview


Two bolts, standard rack
