Left right traverse across the Beak formation ending in a V0 type mantle.


None. Boulder problem.

there seems to be a chipped hold and/or "broken" hold on the lower side pull under the direct line accent of this problem.. just noticed it the other weekend.. anyone wanna own up? huh? anyone? May 3, 2006

I though I remember supertopo calling this thing V4? It always seemed much easier than that, V2 or 3 seems more consistent with castle rock standards anyway... good fun. Oct 19, 2009
originally rated 5.10+ I believe in the Jensen guidebook. Fun problem. Arechiga showed me the extension one day. The extension is contrived to keep the big feet off but it does add pump and spice. Nov 30, 2009

If you start by standing on the ramp on the left side and drop into the face climbing it adds some fun movement. A good reach definitely helps as the moves are big and the feet are low. I'm 5'9"+3 and used it :) Dec 13, 2017
