Description [Suggest Change]

This route has been retro bolted with FA's permission. Bryan climbed this route on trad gear a few years before the crag even had a name (2004?). Bryan gave me permission to make it a sport route, since nobody ever brings trad gear up the hill.

The climbing on this route is really fun and engaging. Start with a tricky section on blocky rock involving handjams and tricky body positions. The second half of the route above the ledge climbs an incredible series of seams, pinches, and even a granite tufa to the anchor.

Bryan's route originally went over the final bulge, and his anchor still remains for those that want the full big Beav experience.
