BETA PHOTO: Looking up, follow the rope on the right.


SPF 25 is left of the large gully. It climbs a nice small roof with reachy holds. It then climbs a nice angling finger crack.


SPF 25 protects with small to medium size gear. The anchor requires medium to larger size gear to set up.

Unfortunately, a tree is laying on top of this climb now. One can only hope that tree will fall over the rest of the way, because this is one of the better climbs at Beachball.

Sucks the tree came down. Hopefully it comes all the way down soon, because this is a great climb for a shorty.

I didn't find the tree to be in the way at all. This is a great route/area when your short on time. Crank in the beginning to an easy finish.Would be at least a two star if it was longer.

The tree is not in the way of climbing this route.

Fun move at the start!
No tree is in the way, it's all clear. And for you bolt-happy Beachball climbers out there, this route is a TRAD route, meaning you can place gear the whole way up in cracks and build an gear anchor at the top. Whoever is going around beachball adding bolts to traditional routes, please don't add unnecessary bolts to this one.
