Loran on the FA right in the middle of the route


Starting just right of the large beech tree, make crux moves up the overhanging swell. Follow the arete up the right side of the Magnum Block until an obvious break right to a belay tree.


On the right side of the Magnum Block is an alcove. The Beech starts on the outside, left edge of the alcove and slab above, just right of a large beech tree.


Small rack of stoppers and small-mid sized cams. It is possible to sling branches on the beech tree to protect the start.
