BETA PHOTO: The Beaver (5.6). Descend from Topside the Daisies...

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is on the Southwest Buttress of Foreign Territory (left-hand side of FT's little canyon area), directly above the Turtle Rock Trail.

After a scramble (easiest from the left) to the spacious belay ledge, begin slightly lower & sidle into the opening moves, placing small/medium gear as you wallow deeper, taking care not to break the delicate ribs beneath your feet. Move through the chimney-like gash to the crux finger crack. Surmount the chockstone to the final hand-crack finish (right side) onto a shelf. Gear belay.

Descent: one can maneuver to the Topside the Daisies anchor to the climber's right of the exit chimney, or discover a walk-off toward the North.

Likely this route has been climbed before.

Location 

Approach: park at the lower Central Area parking lot, and hike in from the West trailhead of the Turtle Rock trail. Continue 50 yards past Holy Saturday, and the Southwest Buttress of Foreign Territory will be to your immediate right.

Trivia: named for an exclamation during an early foray. "Look," said Squeak, pointing to the pond across the trail, "a beaver...."

Protection 

Standard Vedauwoo rack: a few smallish nuts and a wide assortment of tiny-ish to biggish cams.
