Beta Blocker is an unusual, mostly traversing pitch. A few offwidthy moves lead to the wide hand crack of Hypotension. Leave this crack almost immediately, breaking out right and following the obvious horizontal crack. The traverse has good feet. The crux is getting around the funky corner at the end of it, but there are some good hand jams to be found there. Continue up easy hands to a big ledge.


This route is on the far left side of the crag and shares the start with Hypotension. Look for a hand-ish crack in a deep corner.

To descend, scramble generally southwest and then down a steep gully leading to the Hypertension area. The easiest path we found required somewhat exposed low 5th class climbing.


A standard rack to a #3. There is no fixed anchor.
