Description

You might find yourself begging and pleading for beta on this Mike Cronin classic, which abruptly hits you with a puzzle solving crux right at the very beginning. Go for the big pockets and pull yourself over the bumpy ledge to ultra-fun climbing up a series of small ledges and platforms that will you have you begging for bucket holds as you encounter even more cruxes with small flakes, sidepulls, crimps and slopers. The novice climber can earn their place at the breakfast table after finishing this tasty appetizer of a route.

Location

This is one of the first routes you will encounter as you make your way into the Big Picture Gully itself after hiking past the Whipping Post wall and The Patio wall. Beggar's Banquet is the first route that appears to be very close to the actual trail, since the routes on the first two walls, are all located up steep, dirt and tree covered hillsides. The Patio has a rope ladder to assist climbers onto the cliffside belay station.

This is a good, fun route. Great as a warm up for the area. Jun 8, 2010
