Big Wall Forum / Cleaning beaks
« on: March 05, 2013, 01:53:55 pm »
Hello!  I'm a new guy here and fairly new to big walling.

This last weekend I cleaned a pitch with many beaks in a right facing corner.  This was my first time cleaning beaks placed in a corner and I found it very difficult to hit them while they were so close to the wall.  After a while I started using the the pick end of the hammer to whack up and and down, which allowed me to get in closer and at different angles.  The Tomahawks were much easier to get moving due to the bend and the BD beaks with the long blade were the hardest.  I'd like hear of any suggestions, tricks, or technique used to get these puppies out without f'ing up the rock. 

Thanks,
Ez
