On the Beach area, begin right of the hard aretes at a crack with an OW bulge @ 15' above with two distinct pockets out left of the bulge. Pass this crux and get ready for the squeeze that has two cracks inside it. No big gear: no biggie! I found a chockstone on the left in the squeeze.

4 out of 5 stars 5.9+++

Wear a shirt and pants for the squeeze if you want your skin intact; I didn't. I thought it was a bit harder than the rating given it by Doug, more like 10+ to me. Getting my foot below the two pockets at the bulge was difficult.
