The Begoon/Artz climbs the long corner with multiple roofs just left of Lavender Days. In order to avoid rope drag it's best to solo the 5.7 face you use to start Just Another Pretty face and Lavender Days. Once under the corner you can plug a bomber #2 Camalot. Use a mixture of jamming, stemming, laybacking and basic corner funkiness to get you through the multi-tiered roof. Have no fear, this thing is easily succumbed with a few wide stems and a short smeary under cling section.

Highly recommended -- a real pleasant surprise, given the route's apparent lack of traffic. Climbs very similar to corners in the Red, but with better stone.
