DescriptionThe most approachable of the lines left of the Beckey Rt., it was first attempted, ground up by Chris Harmston back in the 90s. I first worked on it around 7 years ago, adding a couple of bolts while bending blades and beaks in the bottoming quartzite seams. Not wanting to beat it up any further, Noah Bigwood and I finished equipping the pitch from the top down, a couple of years later.
This is definitely one of the more unique and sequential routes out there. Similar to the Beckey Rt., it climbs lines of tilted quartzite fins on a granite slab, but the crack never really opens up. It wears you down with a series of cruxes separated by rests not quite good enough to do more than keep you in the game.
