BETA PHOTO: Keenan on the short rap down from Talkin' Smack.


Also known as Talkin' Them Broken Foot Blues this is the face directly below the end of Notalotalk. Thin and steep with a couple of long moves thrown in. An attentive belayer is needed for the belay as the crux is just below the 2nd bolt.


4 quickdraws and 2 for the anchors

The route has now been bolted. Also, we changed the route name to reflect an incident experienced by Adam on the FA.

A few suspect holds in the crux beneath bolt 2. Be careful.
