Seasonal Raptor Closure 2015 - Several Areas MORE INFO >>>


This route follows the perfectly protected crack running up the right side of the beard block (hence the name). It is fairly straight forward and has no defined crux. Don't expect to have great feet throughout this short line.


This route is on the right side of the block directly left of Barbecue The Pope.


Gear to 2 inches. No need for slings as this crack runs pretty straight. Anchors shared with The Left side of the Beard.

Short and fun route for learning crack technique.

I used 4 cams, .4 - .5 - .75.- #2

Better to rap off the side that faces the river
