The original line of the Beckey route, starting up what is now p1 of Fine Line, and then going up a hard stemming pitch to join what is now the Direct Beckey. Most people do the Direct Beckey or Fine Line instead.

FFA(pitch one): Greg Lowe, Jeff Lowe, 1972
FFA(entire route): Reid Dowdle, Paul Potters, 1985 or 1986
