Description

Belly Up is located in a right-facing corner about 30 feet left of Politicians, Priests, and Body Bags.

Scramble up and over some 4th class terrain for about 25 feet to the start of the Belly Up corner crack. At this point, the climbing gets steeper. Climb the crack for approximately 40 feet. The crux is near the top of the crack and involves a weird move where you lean back while stemming (hence the belly up). Alternatively, you may be able to do this move "belly down" and slide over a lip on your right; but this could be ugly. The #4 Camalot is used to protect the crux move.

There is a flat ledge with some solid cracks at the top (and to your right) where you can setup the belay. To exit, head North and descend the first big gully.

Hubbel gives this climb 5.8-. I think it is 5.6.

Protection

Light rack and one #4 Camalot. Use small and medium cams for the anchor.

Lower crack is 5.2; upper move is 5.5 IMHO. Don't need a #4 Camalot as can protect in the corner crack. Once protected, just step up to right to Heidi Hi anchors. Apr 10, 2009

In the Haas/Schneider guide, it says there are many loose blocks on this. I did not notice any dangerous, loose blocks. Apr 8, 2013
