BETA PHOTO: Topo for Chewey the Beaver


Arete or low-angle dihedral to a tricky bulge (crux). Continue up and left through varied & fun climbing.


Either start on a face to the left to gain the arete, or a shared start with "Finked" and stay left.


14 bolts, Mussy hooks.

I do think there is a single 5.9 move at the third (?) bolt, but it's one move and right at the bolt.

Dunno. I'm with Phyl on this one. I gave it a 9-. There's a spicy little move in the first third getting onto the slab. Good fun and a nice long cruise.
