Description Suggest change

Beginner's Luck is one of the handful of routes located to the left of the Access Fund trail's end. From the end of the trail, follow the base of the wall to the left past the large Napa Valley buttress and look for the bolts on Fearless First. Beginner's Luck is the right-trending crack to the left of Fearless First (there are a few bolts to the left of Beginner's but the routes are not identified in Baum's guidebook).

The first half of the crack is a little awkward in spots but straightforward nonetheless. Follow the crack past a horizontal break about a third of the way up. Continue to the top of the crack just below a large ledge. Traverse left and climb to the ledge and the anchors. Easy route and a fine introduction to Unaweep's climbs.

To descend, rap with a single rope from the ledge.
