Dan Beall on Direct North (V14), Buttermilks, California


Direct North from Daniel Beall on Vimeo.

Dan Beall recently made the third ascent of Shawn Diamond's link-up problem Direct North on the Grandma Peabody boulder in the Buttermilks, California. Diamond made the first ascent in 2009. The problem starts on Direction (V13, another Diamond problem) and finishes on Magnetic North (V9/10). French climber Guillaume Glairon-Mondet made the second ascent of the line in early spring 2011. This video shows Beall's attempt right before his ascent.
