BETA PHOTO: Big Bad Beav.


This route has been retro bolted with FA's permission. Bryan climbed this route on trad gear a few years before the crag even had a name (2004?). Bryan gave me permission to make it a sport route, since nobody ever brings trad gear up the hill.

The climbing on this route is really fun and engaging. Start with a tricky section on blocky rock involving handjams and tricky body positions. The second half of the route above the ledge climbs an incredible series of seams, pinches, and even a granite tufa to the anchor.

Bryan's route originally went over the final bulge, and his anchor still remains for those that want the full big Beav experience.


This is on the far left side of the Vista Crag.


9 bolts plus anchor.
