Description

Climb knobs and grippy holds on low angle face, right of the arete. Can be done SDS or start as Greybeard.

Location

From the parking area, walk up the hill on the right hand trail to the top and clearing. Turn right(west) and walk past the boulder on your left with the big scoop(Cheech and Chong)to the rock with left arching seam right next to a tree. This is Yellowbeard. On the otherside of the tree is a tall arete. This is Greybeard. To the right of the arete is a knobby low angle face. This is Blackbeard. These routes are always in the shade.

Protection

Crash pad, spot. At such a low angle its hard to fall off this route. But if you did, you migh be in trouble. So, its a tricky proposition on where to place your pad; cover the rock at the base or pad the ground at the very bottom or both. Just make sure you spotter is protecting the rocks at the base.
Or better yet, just dont fall.
