Two tenuous sections divided by a rippled band that runs horizontally across the cliff. Both the upper and lower face have powerful moves on thin holds. Both are blank enough when you look at them to wonder if they are really climbable. Above the second bolt on Right Tissue head
up and right to the horizontal ripples then left along bands to final headwall directly above the start of Right Tissue.

Beavers (the mammals) build dams by cutting trees down to form ponds that they can live in. They live on the bark of Poplar trees. Figured the name was a stretch for most so I thought I would help you out.


Just left of Last Supper Starts on Right Tissue.

The climbing on Poplar Mechanic is rad! Shout out to the FA's for the hardwork and vision! Apr 1, 2017
This is a pretty fun route. Not quite as skin and tendon destructive as many Beaver Wall routes, and good movement. It is very nearly the same line as Frank Abell, Bob Murray and I top-roped in the mid-late 80s. The top crux is identical. May 16, 2011
Great effort! Jan 24, 2011
Should we be surpirised by this, John. Jun 16, 2010
I'm confused. Jun 15, 2010

Go ahead, watch the video, as I'm about to ruin every possible onsight at the Beaver Wall:

Start on the sharp, painful crimps. Pull up and move to the razor blade. Make another move to the crimp that feels like pirahna teeth. Repeat all the way to the anchors. Jun 14, 2010
Jesse Schults gets the "coveted second ascent." Don't watch it if you want to onsight it.… Jun 14, 2010
There is more open rock to climb there Geir. Get to work. May 20, 2010

How about a route name for those of us who include Beavers in our diets?!?!? May 20, 2010

While this reporter has some work to do before this climb goes into the redpointed column, it is refreshing to see hard routes going up without manufactured holds. Especially on a wall with it's share of chiseled holds.

Powerful crimps, technical climbing and two burly cruxes, all on natural holds, will make this one a Beaverwall Classic.

For those who don't know, poplar (the tree) is a mainstay of some Beavers diets. May 19, 2010
