Description 

climb up face to gain large groove to your left or west and remain in this groove crux until your able to exit onto semi easier friction. I top roped this climb before someone bolted it. It is sustained but definitely is hardest in the groove as I recall.

Location 

uphill, a very short distance east of the long tongue of slab below the Beak Buttress. Just right of the blueberry filled groove. Belay on Bert's Climb top of first pitch. Rappel or continue up Bert's.

Protection 

Bring trad gear and widely spaced bolts as usual. There used to be a rappel station above Bert's climb first pitch belay corner. It was stoppers in the corner. There is a early 1990's three bolt rappel station.
