Gorgeous nuttall sandstone. Rod Serling Crack in t...
Start in a left-facing dihedral in an alcove. The dihedral butts into a roof, smear and stem to get to the lip, still following the now horizontal dihedral, then pull the roof and follow the mainly finger-sized crack to the anchors. This is one of the many high quality 5.10 gear lines of Beauty Mountain. On par with Burning Calves, and Wham Bam. This route is prone to getting the rope stuck after pulling the roof. Just drop a large stopper at the lip of the roof, and don't clip it. This keeps the rope out of the crack pretty well.
Upstream and around the corner (to climber's right) from Burning Calves. You'll turn the corner and walk slightly downhill, then back up- it's hard to miss. A pretty distinct route.
Nuts, finger and hand-sized cams up to 2". Bolted anchor.
