Another shot of Reef Shark. Ben takes a lap on TR.


Follow 3 bolts up & left to gain a very nice thin hands splitter.


The obvious thin hands splitter on the Lower Beach wall.


3 draws, single set of cams from .3 thru #3 camalot, with 2-3 #.75s and maybe an extra #1. Bolted rap anchor.

This climb felt on the hard side of 10. I was completely stumped by the move above the 3rd bolt to enter the flare!

Very cool route which is consistently hard 10 (imo) throughout.

This line definitely felt like hard 10 to me. It was very thin rattly hands for me, I couldn't get anything past my large knuckles so all of my jams were very insecure. Good ring locks were also difficult to get as well. Definitely somewhat dependent on hand size.

Awesome route, crux getting past the third bolt into the pod! Great position though!
