A fantastic powerful climb that goes from vertical to quite overhung. Beta Male is a line of yellow gated fixed draws that shoots up the left flank of the WOOF. The fixed anchor is just below the lip of the roof. Ascend 1/2 Omega then traversing left to an anchor below Beta Male (yellow gated fixed draws), clipping as few bolts as you feel comfortable with alpine draws.

The climb itself has a stout beginning section around the 2nd and 3rd draws, then a distinct crux in the middle of the climb. The top has bigger holds but becomes scrunched, put on your thinking cap and keep it together. Try hard and you will send


Left side of the WOOF, K9 crag, Fun Rocks, Mazama, Washington, North America.
