Steven Van Betten low on Coven, September 2nd, 201...


Sustained 5.10 face climbing leads to a crux undercling beneath a roof. The Notorious B.E.G. (5.11c) starts to the left on thin face and can be linked into the upper crux of this route for a very sustained pitch of 5.11.


Climbs the face to the left of a large chimney (the Becky Route climbs the right edge of this chimney).


12 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

There is another 5.11 sport climb to the right of this route (near the left edge of the chimney). I don't know what it is called, but it's got some fun moves on thin face with good rests in between.

Don't hesitate to try the Coven/ Fu(Seriously Fu) Manchu extension, no I'm serious. From the Coven anchor, climb left on good holds and feet to what would be the second to the last bolt of the new route "Fu Manchu". Clip this with a extended draw, make a little mantel move, clip the last bolt and crank over the little roof(10c?) to the Fu Manchu anchor. Lower off with a 70m. Watch the end.

And remember, it is pronounced COE-ven, not CUV-en. Seriously....
