Description

Begin by stemming your way up an ever-steepening obvious wide slot (this is where the 4" piece may come in handy, although smaller gear options exist deeper in the fissure). Pull through the awkward bulge, gain the ledge, and continue up the broken dihedral (same finish as for Route 19).

Location

Route #20 in Chen/Wehner, as shown on
South side of the Big Enchilada. Sorry for the poor quality, this is a photo of a photo. .

This climb is also listed as Beverly #22 (5.9) and Jackson #11 (5.9).

Protection

Standard rack up to 3" (4" optional at bottom) to a 2-bolt anchor.

The easiest way to climb up to an anchor on this route is to begin as for "Route 21", moving left midway up. Probably this goes at 5.8, as it skips the cruxes of either route. Mar 22, 2009
The route 20-21 combo George mentions, bypassing the Headjam crux, is a nice 5.8 lead if you are looking for one. Mar 22, 2010
