Description:

This is the easy way to get to Wheat Thin (that is, lots easier than Waverly Wafer, though fairly tough for 5.10a). 10a cracks up thru a chimney move or three, to a ledge, then move right to the base of Wheat Thin. If you're really comfortable at the grade, you can just do Wheat Thin straight from the Bev's Tower belay. The rope drag picks up at the end, but the climbing gets easier.

5 out of 5 stars Love the overhang

It had been a while since I had led, so I sewed it up with a lot of gear, especially near the bottom.

3 out of 5 stars Scary

Well, not for me, I was following, but Darko was so sketched out that he was placing nuts. (He'll almost always run it out rather than place a nut.)
