BETA PHOTO: Gargantua (& variation) and Baker Street

Description 

Baker Street starts on the Gargantua Variation (5.9) but ascends the face immediately to the right of the Gargantua crack. Start right of the corner, follow thin crack up and slightly left to face with small sharp holds. Don't get too close to the crack (Gargantua).


Protection 

Medium nuts and a long piece of webbing for the top-rope.

Fabulous line, but probably not a 10d. It's similar in style to Flake Route, but not as pumpy, nor as sustained. No particularly difficult moves, solid crimps on a slightly forward leaning face.

This is a great climb! Very sequency. Not many hard crimps. A lot of balance moves.
