Description

Follow a line of bolts up the left side of the Bean Liquor Wall. Hambanger starts with some moves on a short face to gain a slot and eventually chases an arete to the top of the crag. Nice, well protected moves to an interesting sequence on the arete. Felt more like 10a/b than 10d (5.10d in Rolofson's guide).

Protection

Nine bolts, two bolt anchor.

Hello all,
So yesterday I climbed the corner between Bean Bagger and Hambanger. Nice jugs and sketchy pro. Does anyone know what it is called? Thanks

I'm not sure how the last few moves were intended to be done. It's tempting to move to the left side of the arete and finish there. Climbing directly along the boltline seems only slightly more difficult, but requires some blind fumbling into the right crack. In any case, the route has some interesting moves. Jul 14, 2008

Good route, though not 10+ as in the book. Probably 5.10b, as suggeted above. I did find it pretty fun, and the crux was the best part- a little grace gets you through it tired/pumped or not. Jun 12, 2006

Indeed. However, I did like the opening to the middle route. These routes will also seem a bit contrived to the purist, but I have often enjoyed trying to figure out just what the FA team had in mind. On a crag with brilliant climbs like Cosmosis or The Verve, these routes won't knock your socks off. But, they add some variety in a quite little spot with easy access and have some fun movement. Besides, pulling carefully on delicate rock is good experience for climbing in the mountains. In fact, and it is worth mentioning here, the little flake by the fifth clip flexed enough when I pulled on it that I suspect it will not last very long. Aug 19, 2003

In my view, this route is really the only one worth doing on this part of Bell Buttress. The gully routes feature crumbly rock and creaky flakes. Aug 19, 2003
