photo creds to Devon from CO


This is a very nice, diverse finger crack, despite its wandering nature. Start in either of two twin handcracks up to a ledge, pull a really cool roof on jams and jugs, and get established in the wavering finger crack above. There are a couple different ways to go with different crack systems, but both lead to the base of a mini-dihedral. Continue up the steep crack, via good stances, to an ancient pair of rusted bolts. It is possible to lower off here if you want to leave a stopper to back up the bolts, but these anchors are pretty sketch. If continuing to the top, move right onto face jugs for another 20 feet and belay from a tree. 70m would be a good idea, but I'm not sure if it is mandatory.


far upstream end of Beauty Mountain, about a three minute walk past the Thunder Buttress/Supercrack area.


A couple pieces of everything. Emphasis on fingers, but some larger stuff for the bottom. #4 to protect the initial roof move. 2 bolts.
