BETA PHOTO: Straight Eight


This is the hardest "5.8" I've ever done, and felt more difficult to me than "Fine Nine." Great, clean fist crack that was steep and pumpy. Tape seemed liked a must.


Center fist crack on the wall (prominent fist crack left of Fine Nine corner).


Gear to 4". Move right to rusty 2 bolt anchor for Fine Nine. Better to anchor to detached horn wedged in crack above Fine Nine corner.
