Description

Where is it? In general, Belly Up is about 30 paces West of the Brain Cloud arĂȘte. Start about 10 feet left (West) and around a small corner from Politicians, Priests, and Body Bags (PPBB is easily identified by two, prominent, double, thin cracks at its base). Looking up from the base of Belly Up, your target is the thin crack that goes from left-to-right and converges with the hand sized vertical crack (Heidi Hi) on the smooth and slightly overhung upper face of the cliff.

The route: climb straight up over easier rock and head towards the left-to-right thin crack. Midway up the thin crack you will pass a small flake. Then, you will move into the Heidi Hi hand crack. This route has excellent protection.

Protection

Pro to 3" (cams work best), bolted anchor.

The small flake you pass is used for Heidi Hi as well. The crack you use is very short. The beginning of the climb is the main variation. Apr 24, 2017
