I can attest to accuracy of this BETA; definitely good to have a ~3" cam (BD #3 blue) as part of a secure anchor at the belay after 2nd pitch. There is one good area for a #2 and I've placed a second one of those as well, but last time it ended up walking a ways in (still holding fine) as the crack is deep and varying width. There is one spot for ~0.5" cam about 5-6ft away from main placement area, but other than that mainly all 2" to maybe 3.25" placements in the main crack. Oct 27, 2015
