Description

This is an awesome route maybe 50 yards from the majority of the climbing at The Beach. It is less steep but more technical than most other routes at the Beach. Start off with a big, slopey jug rail, and move into a beta intensive crux around bolt 3. Once over the roof, the climb backs off and becomes much more juggy. This is a stellar route, and with a little more traffic, it will be of the same quality as other classics at this crag.

It may help to have a big reach through the roof.

Location

It is approximately 50 yards up canyon from the majority of routes at The Beach. This is best approached by walking the cliff line up a small hill and down a gully to the water's edge. It is completely north-facing with no sun to my knowledge.

Protection

4 bolts 2 bolt anchor with biners.

Finally got around to climbing on this route almost a year after I bolted it and skyler snagged the FA. Overall I thought it was a worthy challenge, but the crux is kinda strange and tedious. I think I did almost 10 hand moves in order to travel a distance of about 4ft. Nice rock and pretty aesthetic for such a short route. Jan 3, 2017
