Description

The crux of this route comes right off the ground with a mantle move to start. After this move left out of the chimney past one bolt and continue up discontinuous cracks and face to a ledge on the left side of a big roof. Traverse right from the ledge on low angle rock past one bolt to the arete. This traverse is technically easy but takes a cool head as you are traversing just above the lip of that big roof. Follow the arete to the top and enjoy the view.

Location

This route is on the Southwest end of Beaver wall about 30 feet left of Stems and Seeds. The descent is a walk off so this can be done with one 60 meter rope.

Protection

Gear up to 3 inches will be helpful. There is a bolt near the bottom and one more up high protecting the traverse. Two bolt anchor on top.

Fun route. A really great route to climb during sunset. A buddy of mine followed me up the route, and had to stop to admire the sunset and twinkling light of Tucson below. Wouldn't recommend this route to someone breaking into leading 5.7. Jan 22, 2009

mantle move at the start was hard and dangerous. not recommended for anyone new to trad.

that being said...

Took a lead fall off this route last year while traversing above the roof, after clipping the bolt. The edge of the roof sawed through the rope, completely cutting the sheath and most of the core fibers. If a few more of the core fibers had parted, or if I'd been using a thinner rope, I would have decked. Instead I got off with some scratches and bruises from smacking into the face below, and paying for a half a new rope for my partner. The rope was a fairly new Mammut Infinity Dry 9.5, so we weren't skimping. Although it's a fine route in other ways, the sharpness of the edge and placement of the bolt (though well-intended) would lead me to give this an R or X rating. If I were to climb it again (which I wouldn't) I'd skip clipping the bolt above the roof, even though it could mean a much longer fall into the dihedral. Jun 22, 2018
Remember that as super easy, did a hold break? Jun 22, 2018
