4 out of 5 stars The Beast

Forget 12d, this may be one of the hardest 13a's anywhere. A style that I'm not too good at though. I don't understand what the big deal about the extension is... not great and totally out of character with the rest of the climb.

5 out of 5 stars the beast

this is one of my favorites. I'm the most dynamically challenged climber ever!! this was a sweet send for me. good holds seperated by two semi-dynamic cruxes. and a little sketchy last run out sick!!

the second pitch blows...shitty rock!

5 out of 5 stars the beast

this is solid 13a. in 93 there was a knee bar which is long been gone. many climbers say solid for the grade. classic line.
