Leader on "Betty Does Brownsville."

Description 

Boulder up the initial headwall on pockets, inclusions, and small edges, to a featured lower angled slab. Above the slab the wall steepens to pass a huge block and onto a steep pocketed headwall. Climb the headwall on pockets and cobbles. At the last bolt move left on a step through to the anchors. Upon its completion "Betty" became an instant classic.

Location 

On the east wall of the Corridor, just upslope from the bush. Begin with hands in two large flared pocket-like depressions.

Protection 

10 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.

Love this route. Crux is definitely the opening moves (for this short person, anyway). Thanks to Pam, too, and the others who put this up.
