Directions:  Just left of the Ethereal Buttress, home of Seventh Seal, Ethereal Crack and Loose Lips. Climb the first pitch of Beelzebub or Revolt of the Dike Brigade to the 2-bolt anchor on Revolt.
Description: Very nice climbing with a mixture of face and overhangs. The crux pulls through the roof to the Loose Lips anchor at a surprising 5.9!
    Pitch 1: Climb straight up past a small tree to a dike (bolt) to the second pitch corner on Beelzebub. Continue up the corner to the left for 30 to a bolt on the right at the overlap. Pull through the overlaps on jugs past 2 more bolts to the Loose Lips anchor.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel to the ground with 2 ropes
History:  September 2002 - Brad White, Ian Cruickshank
