Alex cruising up "Almost Rectum" at Beav...

Description 

The first line of bolts that starts to the left of the big boulder leaning against the cliff.

The direct start feels 5.10+, but you can traverse into the route from the left to the first big ledge. Follow the bolt line climbing up the left facing open book. Some fun thin moves higher up. A little crumbly in a spot or two. Dirtier than a few of the other routes. Webbing anchor on a tree up top with some rings.

There is an optional gear placement or two in the middle of the route. Small fingertip sized cams.

There used to be a tree at the base of the climb where the first ascensionist almost speared his rear-end. Nice name.

Location 

1st line of bolts to the left of the big boulder leaning against the cliff.

Protection 

Draws. 1 or 2 small cams (optional, but not necessary)
