Description

Beet the Burn is one of the most popular routes at the Moke. It involves technical stemming over a series of two steep roofs. The climbing is not particularly straightforward and if you do not unlock the secret you will quickly learn why this route is named Beet the Burn. Most parties start the route right of the first bolt. Get used to stemming. The wider your stance, the more stable you will be. Starting left is an optional harder variation and it's indicated on the topo in red.

For all you 5.9 leaders, be careful approaching this route. The crux is very beta specific and not entirely intuative. Even once you're past it, you can still feel quite insecure. Beyond that section the rest of the climb goes at 5.9 or easier. Sep 17, 2012
