BETA PHOTO: Great pitch.


Climb a corner to a lieback/undercling 2" crack through roof to good handjam at lip. It is a 1.5-2" corner to the top. CLASSIC PITCH!


This is about 50 feet climber's right of Willy's Hand Jive. It is an obvious corner with roof/corner about 30 feet up.


1" to 2" camming units of your choice. There are new anchors at the top.

A little more beta on gear (if you want it): in BD Camalots (new sizes): two 0.5s, two 0.75s, 4-6 #1s, you can get a #2 and/or a #3 in some of the pods, but you can also protect everything after the roof on #1s alone.
