Start up some low angle rock into a left facing, white colored dihedral and follow this to the top anchors shared with Switchblade.

Descend via the rappel anchors above Bladerunner or on either end of Snag Ledge.
Alternatively join up with some other line and climb to the top of Beacon Rock.


This route is accessed via the Beacon Rock climber's trail which runs from the east end of the parking area, past the east wall and eventually under the south face of Beacon Rock.
Look for a short trail that leads towards the small amphitheater just after the "CAUTION FALLING ROCK" sign and before you reach the SE FACE/CORNER route.


Gear and bolts protect this route.

If top roping be sure to use a redirect before the anchors to keep the rope in line with route.


FFA was done in winter 1986 -1987 by Jeff Thomas, Charles Arnett, and Eric Freden. There were no bolts. Thomas led it in brilliant style using only a few first-generation TCUs in shallow slots. Sep 12, 2018

That’s great to know and enjoy hearing about the original ascent. If you go look at it now there is an old bolt part way up the start, might have some tat on it. Sep 12, 2018
