BETA PHOTO: Near Beer Route


Hard for 5.6 ! Awkward move exiting the alcove and overhang.

Work your way up some broken rock for a few moves, then go right above the first bolt to a stance. Continue straight up past a small overhang (crux), then go left to the obvious flake and wide crack. Follow flake and crack to the anchors.


On a small ledge on a small southwest-facing portion of the cliff, about 12 feet left of Gilded Otter where the trail descends a bit.


4 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

It hadn't rained for days and the ground right in front of this climb was muddy from seepage. Bring a tarp/towel, even if it is sunny.
