Seasonal Raptor Closure: Noontime and Midnight Rock MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Stellar movement on perfect rock. Start on good crimps on the rail-like feature that points up and right. Work up to the left sidepull, stick and hold the thin crimp on the face above, and move through to the great finish hold at the lip. Good footwork makes this much easier.
I thought the topout was not so much "happy", which is the word Kelly used, as much as a little freaky. Just a straight mantle, with a decent right heel/foot. I thought this was one of the better lines in the area, and perhaps soft for the grade

Location 

When you hit the Warm Up boulder on your left, hike right to a bunch of striking clean faces. Beckey's Problem is a clean face about 12 feet tall with a built up landing, a 2-3 centimeter deep left facing sidepull at the 7 foot mark, and a few crimps on the face. Use Kelly's guidebook.

Protection 

At least 2 pads and a good spotter, but more is going to be better on this one. The landing has been built up pretty well, but is still uneven enough to screw up an ankle.

Cool problem, kind of sharp. Sit start adds some difficulty and a couple of cool moves.
