Great Beyond, 5.10

8th Pitch- 20m- 5.10/ Getting through the squeeze off- width slot is the crux of the climb. It pays to be small waisted for this pitch. Start out facing the main wall. The trick is timing the 180 degree turn counter clockwise facing out. The sandstone is sugary with not much help in the way of friction. You can protect the move with a 5”-6” piece. Once you achieve a meter or so of squirming above this slot, the climbing eases up to the top of the route. Belay off of the large tree on top of the Cerberus Gendarme wall.
