BETA PHOTO: Sinking the lesser-used right heel beta

Description 

Superb movement with a variety of ways to get through the crux. Start on good edges and feet from the ground and move up the sidepulls, slopers, and edges. The height may get to you if you're used to short problems, but the landing is great and safe overall.

From mid-height either use your best layback skills to move through the sloping pinches at the top, or hike up your feet and do a large deadpoint/dyno to the rail.

Top out straight above with an easy mantle.

Location 

In the little room on the backside of the Giant Man slab boulder.

Protection 

Crashpad and a spotter

Classic. If you have a mountain of pads below it gets to be real fun.
