The Beach classic. Graham’s first attempt ended with a huge fall when he missed the move for the perma-chalked jug high on the arete.
The exposed tenuous climbing still raises the heart rate, even with the extra bolt he placed before his next attempt. Interest is maintained by run-outs on the moderate sections of the climb. Start up the L leaning ramp at the base of the arete, then steeply up pockets into the small hanging corner. Swing L to easier runout climbing above the first bolt (no natural pro past here) to the ledge. Marvelous airy sustained climbing follows the arete to the top.
