DescriptionThis is a "Beastmaker" variation...
Instead of busting out to the far left to the sharp little dimply side-pull hold and falling into the side-pull off of the big jug like you do for "Beastmaker", off of the big jug toss straight up the arête, direct, and hold the hard gaston. Finish directly up the arête. Basically climb Beastmaker without going out onto the left face.
This was the original way I tried this line and I think the most obvious. Most people who try this think it should be climbed this way, but going out left turns out to be easier. Technically this is an eliminate but dont write it off, this its a good variation for sure!
If you send this line let me know if you think it goes at a 7 or an 8. The only differance in these two is not going out onto the left face, but instead using the hard mid-arete gaston.
