The Beach, also known as the Upper Cheeks, stretches from the Perverse Traverse all the way over to the gully between the Cheeks and the Diamond. The white faces of the Cheeks house some of the steepest climbs in the area and is sunny in the morning and goes into the shade in the early afternoon.
A common approach from the left side is via the Perverse Traverse.
