Plenty of gear in the 2-4inch range. It's helpful to have bigger piece for the easier, but commiting moves to the anchor.

Description:

It looks mean. But good jams and some face holds make this route very fun. Walk left from the approach stairs almost until you reach a gully that leads to the top of the crag. Butterbeans is a striking left-facing dihedral with a 4" crack that widens near the top. It looks mean. But good jams and some face holds make this route very worthwhile.
