Description

Follow a crack system with really fun moves to a good stance just below the steep face. Make a move up to clip the first bolt on the face and then figure out how to pull on the thin but positive holds to get up over the bulge. Clip two more bolts en route to the two bolt anchor.

Location

Route #4 in Chen/Wehner, as shown on
East side of Big Enchilada. From my old guide. .

This climb is also listed as Beverly #5 (5.11b/c) and Jackson #4 (5.11c).

Protection

Pro to 2.5", 3 bolts and a two bolt anchor. The bolt hangers were originally the "SMC death hangers" but were replaced in February 2011--the bolts themselves still felt and looked solid.
