DescriptionDisclaimer: This rock holds more than the two routes listed in Kerry 2ed, and that the descriptions in Kerry are insufficient for me to identify Teabaggin' or Sawin' the Bean. (The Out of Downers area was being developed just when that guide was coming out.)
This route packs a variety of good climbing into one pitch. Boulder onto the shelf, and face climb using the cracks primarily for protection. At the right-angling roof system, jog left. Climb the flared but well-protected hand crack (crux) until you can escape left to chickenheads. When the chickens peter out, you have about 10 feet of slab to the top.
LocationThis route is on the smaller, unnamed dome just behind/north of the right/northeast half of Out-of-Downers Dome. The main landmark at this wall is a large tree growing right in the corner of a right-facing dihedral. This route starts about 10 feet right of that tree, at a head-high shelf from which two finger-sized cracks/seams go up.
Descend by walking off to the northeast.
