Description Suggest change

This route is an excellent variation for the final pitch of Beckey's Wall. From the 2nd belay station, continue up Beckeys for 10-20 feet and then work right along a ledge system. From here you can see the line of bolts. Climb the left line of bolts. The last bolt can be hard to pick out, it is there. From the anchors climb up and over (west) until you can reach some easily downclimbed ledge systems. These will take you to a large pine tree with slings, a cable, a biner, and 2 old rap rings (Five Fingers Rappel). Rap down and then downclimb and head east, where you can reach the Half-a-Finger anchors for a 2nd rap. The rock on this route is nice, albeit a bit flaky. Definitely a nice alternative to the easy gully scramble that finishes Beckey's Wall.

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. A couple of pieces could take a bite out of the beginning cruiser section.
