Climbs a steep thin arete to the right of Beverly's Tower. Looks nearly impossible but good edges for feet make the corner go at a much easier grade than it looks like it would. Good fingerlocks and pro the whole way. Wild and exposed!

Descent Options:

Rap from the anchors or continue up to Butterballs.

5 out of 5 stars great route

I agree with chad. A nice route. However, I thought it was soft for 11b. More like 10+ I used a variety of gear sizes, up to a #3. Probably best to bring doubles to #1 camalot, and singles 2,3. This route meanders a bunch. For that reason, I didn't use passive pro.

5 out of 5 stars Wild

Pretty intimidating looking but not too bad. You get that really exposed feeling up there. Definately worth doing. Good pro.
