Description

A new route in 2006 on the west side of Beer Block. A nicely bolted route that steepens the higher you go. Thinner moves down low around the second bolt with steep moves passing the last bolt and moving to the anchors on the left.

The anchor location looks odd but it's not that much of a traverse and offers a big jug for clipping so it makes sense. Two cruxes--going to the sixth bolt and then again traversing to the big jug below the anchors.

Location

On the left side of the west face of Beer Block.

Protection

6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

An enjoyable route with some thin moves near the top before moving left to a great jug to clip the anchors. Oct 17, 2006

Nice route! Traversing to the anchors is not as bad as it looks. It is hard to clean the draws from the route especially if you rappel. Oct 19, 2006

A nice route full of surprises. Not as straight forward as many routes in the area. Jun 11, 2007
