Description

Located on Sport Park's Surprising Crag (west side), American Beauty ascends a vertical wall for roughly 60/70 feet. The climbing involves clean rock on mostly lay back flakes until one is faced with the final crux moves. It's not exactly certain whether the first ascenionist intended for the line to go straight up or utilize the crack to the left to get established on the well-protected crux. Either way, a balancy set of moves to a better holds up high makes for a great climb. Probably more like 12b -- the guidebook gives it 12c.

Protection

7 bolts (half inch Rawl 5-piece w/ Fixe hangers); Fixe SS ring anchors.
