BETA PHOTO: Popeye, 5.11a


A strenuous hand and fist roof crack. This is one of the few climbs on which I pulled a hamstring muscle.


This climb is set back a ways from the outside of the formation. It is below and well to the right of Acid Crack on the southeast face. A short, slanting hand crack leads over a roof, across from The Taming of the Shoe.


mainly 2" - 3" pieces
