Description

This route must be done in 2 pitches due to the 50 ft traverse required to reach the dihedral and roof pitch.

P1: Climb up the wide crack to reach a large ledge to the right(30-40 ft).

P2: This is the money pitch!! After traversing about 50 ft to the right, set up a belay at the base of a left facing corner. Climb up the crack in the corner to reach the first roof. Traverse a few feet to the right and pull the roof following a .5-.75" crack to the next roof. At the base of this roof, traverse a bit to the left and pull up and follow the short crack to the anchors.

If this second pitch were more easily accessible, this would surely be a classic climb for the area!

Location

Approaching from the south entrance to Beauty Mountain and walking downstream, look for a large ledge about 30 ft up. Once you locate this ledge, you will see the obvious dihedral.

Protection

Some hands to wide gear for the first pitch. Mostly larger stoppers and cams (.5 to 1.5") for the second pitch. As of 10/08, there was a cable anchor slung around a large tree at the top.
