This left facing dihedral leads to the flake belay on the Beckey. We did an incorrect direct direct start up a very grainy dihedral, which was fine. The actual start is much farther right.

A seam angles left up a golden stained slab under a roof. This deposits you a the base of a large left facing dihedral. Move left at the top of the dihedral, around the corner to the flakes atop Beckey P1.


A fair bit right of the normal start up the drainage between El Segundo and Premier buttresses.


Standard rack sufficed. Additionally, a BD #4 was key as were some small cams.

Really fun pitch. Interesting slab moves up to a cool undercling roof traverse. #4 not needed Jun 18, 2018
