Scottie Beguin Up To Bat


Start the route via a 4th class scramble to the beginning of the leaning finger crack dihedral. The crux is a thin fingers/stemming problem in the first twenty feet and then eases up just a tad and turns into a wide vassicular hands/fist crack. Belay from a tree on the top. This is a Diablo shorty classic, but needs lowering anchors now that the crag is finally seeing some traffic.


1st beautiful overhanging washed crack to the right of Early Arete on The Early Wall


A 60 meter rope, 1/4"-4" cams, 1 set of stoppers, and runners. Belay off of a tree on the top and walk off to the east.

This is another Diablo climb which probably saw recent FAs? in the 1990s. We cleaned a large flake off the left wall prior to the ascent.

Anchor bolts placed! Will be shared with a really good face route up the middle of the slab.
