Description 

Clip the first two bolts on Granite Beach, and head up and right toward the overhanging corner/prow. Power up the prow to an awkward stance just below a right-facing hanging corner (12a). Get established in above corner using small crimps, underclings, and fingertip laybacks (pumpy, sustained, and technical /crux). Climb up to the dihedral on the right and up this for 30 feet to the ledge and anchors. 60 M rope required.


Protection 

13 bolts; 2 bolt anchor; 100 feet
