5 out of 5 stars Fantastic Day

Fun and varied climbing all the way up. High quality rock on every pitch. Even a good jam crack over a thorn bush on the 5.8 pitch.

5 out of 5 stars A sustained and interesting line!

For a rest day we did the first three pitches of the Beckey direct and the 4th pitch amazing 11+ corner of the Original beckey. Its one of the few routes at the perch you can rap easily with one rope (lower pitches only) so its kinda cool to do this up a ways and then do the Fine Line to the top another day since they share the last 4 pitches. So the first pitch of the direct is a pretty hard to read. Hang in there and you may just pull it off. Hint.. look closely at the topo! Sustained climbing continues. The 11+ corner is a must do! it looks intimidating since there are plants in it but they hide great fixed pins and you stem around them the whole way. Not too hard for the grade but a very proud onsight for me. Solid amazing fun Stemming!

5 out of 5 stars Does it get any better

Did this one twice just to savor it. did it the second time with Nate in 6 hours base to top while being chased by a really strong french couple.
