BETA PHOTO: Start of Beauty and the Beast.

Description 

Beauty and the Beast has a fun, steep start followed by a beautiful slab. The so so rock at the start leads to bulletproof granite higher.

P1. 5.10a/b: climb past three bolts then left out an overhang. Diagonal up and right to a fourth bolt, lacing TCUs in horizontals, then head straight up or right to a crack. Continue straight up and turn the overhang at a large horn then climb past one more bolt to the anchors shared with Footloose.

  • ***A 6O METER ROPE IS NEEDED FOR RAPPEL.***

Location 

See the photo.

Protection 

Five bolts, TCUs to 2" cams, and some long slings.
