Description

Becker is located on the NW face of John's Tower. Locate the two parallel cracks, which are 20-30 feet right of a wide crack called Big House and climb them. The beginning of Becker is easily accessed from the left by bouldering up to a good-sized belay ledge. Awkward jams and an odd wide exit leads to a double bolt belay. Fun climb with unique jams and moves, painful at times, and definitely hard for its grade.

Protection

Standard rack, a #4 Camalot is useful.

5.7 is the grade listed in the latest guidebook for the area and apeared to me to be accurate. A good climb with a tricky crux. Aug 14, 2007

Save a big cam for the final OW (looked like a #5 but maybe a #4 works too). I resorted to removing my helmet and cramming myself into the bottom of it to (just barely) place a #2 in a crack behind it, but it was really tough. Otherwise you're pulling the cruxy moves with your last pro maybe 10 feet below you. Jul 10, 2017
