The original aid line of the Beast. A wild ride for sure. Some lifetime I'll get the redpoint, maybe.


Up the 5.10 finger crack then the 11+ groovy thing. Now head left out the bulge and fall off and off... just wild.


Some fixed pins, but I'd be a bit skeptical by now.

Very cool. Congratulations Sam. I had no idea it was climbed so infrequently. Back in the day, round the campfire, I must have looked a thousand times at that picture of Jim Surette on Cerberus in old Websters Almanac, as we called it. Jun 11, 2012
