BETA PHOTO: Beat the Champ.


Sit start with your left hand in the as-deep-as-it-gets two finger pocket and launch into classic move after classic move. Climb up the center of the steep face through ledges, crimps, slopers and pockets. Strap your head on for a high crux, because this one isn't over until it's over. Not for the faint of heart.

A truly proud line, this would be a four star boulder anywhere in the country.

This will likely go somewhere in the V5-7 range.


Park in the area labeled "alternate parking" and walk east to scramble off the top of the butte. Walk along the base of the butte with the wall on your right. Beat the Champ is just to the left of Grudge Match, climbing the center of tallest section of the block.


Pads and spotters. There are several large rocks in the landing area below the top out, so a fall from up high could be quite dangerous.

About fifteen feet back from the top of the block is a crack which accepts medium to large cams and nuts. Perfect for setting up an anchor to clean holds and/or work the problem on a rope before committing to the send.
