BETA PHOTO: Fun for the Fam!


Who thinks of these names? I hope that this isn't what people think of while climbing. This is a fun little route for groups of beginners or small children. Pretty fun for a short 5.7 (beta I got), seemed easier than that to me.


On the east face of an arete with a scoop out of the bottom and a roof at the top. There is a decent path to the west with a rippled slab.


There are lots of hangers up top, but it seems that one from every pair has been smashed. There is on hanger in the middle that can be used as a backup with some long slings.

The 2006 edition of Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah shows two routes on this spot--Hairy Virgin is just left of the arete and The Offering (5.6) seems to follow the line of the photo posted here. There is third unnamed route (5.7ish) that goes up and right of the arete that is bolted.

Bring long slings to set up a TR for these routes as one of the two bolts at the top of The Offering and at the top of the unnamed route have been destroyed. A new (third) bolt has been placed in between the TR bolts of the two routes.

There were 3 anchor set ups with 2 bolts each for the routes mentioned. One of the bolts was wiggling in it's hole for the Hairy Virgin anchor. There are cracks that can be used to back it up with trad gear or you could sling a huge boulder for pro too with a cordalette.
