BETA PHOTO: The Beach Crack (V3)


This stellar problem is located on the blunt prow to the left of the Kahuna Roof. The line is very obvious - follow the crack right and up to a moderate topout. I did a sit-down start, seemed like the most logical way to do it. I found it quite sequential.

This problem was something of a grudge match for me a couple years ago - I sent it by myself on a cold winter day. The topout was covered in a couple inches of snow, as was the talus below. I had to find and dig out holds as I topped out - certainly added a level of excitement.


Generally a good landing, but don't fall from the easy topout.

This route, perhaps like a lot Carter, has some sharp holds. I had worked on it once or twice and when I had it figured out and was heading up I gashed a finger while working it into a key crack and covered my sunglasses in blood when I pulled down. However, it is pretty fun and a good problem to work in the area if your not up to the Kahuna roof.
