Description

The next step after you have been to Hades (10c). Beelzebub is a striking off-width line on the north side of Pinnacle Peak. Unfortunately, this aesthetic looking line does not receive much play, which is a shame as with more traffic the loose bits will exfoliate off. As of now, be prepared for sharp, slippery, and crumbly rock starting off the ground (crux).

There is an old bolt you can clip through the crux section, though a #5 and #6 BD cam could protect this if you can find placements that aren't on creaky flakes.

If you do decide to go for it, good luck. Follow the squeeze chimney up to surmount the roof via easier moves.

Location

The best approach is to go up to the main, shady Pinnacle Peak alcove on the north side, then continue following the cliff line to the right. This trail should be very easy to find and follow, if not you are too low and need to stay closer to the cliff. As you curve around west the trail worsens as you reach the base of the route. You will have to scramble up some crumbly boulders just below the climb to reach it.

Protection

Singles from fingers to #5 BD. Several #6 cams. Currently two manky bolts near the start.

2 bolt rap anchor at the top.
