BETA PHOTO: Studio 54


Studio 54 is the best crack system in between Beautiful Day and Tralfamador and is more or less the direct and complete version of "Man's Gotta Climb and Wonder Why" as referenced in Toula's book. This long varied pitch features an exciting steep thin hands crux, and glorious splitter headwall.

Begin next to a giant bush and right facing wide crack. Boulder up to the top of the flake and into crack systems in the face, some vegetation. Work into somewhat of a slot and up through the crux. Finish jamming through the headwall and up to the rim!


In between Beautiful Day and Tralfamador.


stoppers, and at least doubles cams up to #3. a #4 C4 is handy at the beginning.
Belay anchor consists of hand sized cams.
