Description 

Start in a 4-5" crack and continue up discontinuous cracks that vary in size from .5" to 2" for about 60-70 feet. Crux seems to be 15 feet from the top. Pro is very good, can be easily protected all the way up the climb. Cracks are not "junky" but may be dirty due to the lack of traffic. The climb is very fun and should be on your list if your at Palisade. This beach is calm, quiet, and sunny in the afternoon. Why not climb here?


Location 

If your starting at the Palisade parking lot, head south for a good ten minutes or maybe 500 yards to the area called "The South Annex." You can either repel to the beach or climb down the gully that is on the southwestern side of the beach. The gully is a little sketchy and very poor rock to scramble on. A 30 ft piece of webbing would be sufficient to protect your decent. Once your at the beach head left or east (about 40 yards) to a very obvious crack system. There is a left facing dihedral (that goes almost halfway up the cliff) to the right of the climb.


Protection 

Rack:
.3" to 4" BD Cams (may help to have 2 #2's and 2 #.75's)
The nuts and hexes could easily be left out.
