Such a cool climb, and to think about doing it in 1951.

Long, steep and pumpy pitch. Today's standards, it's hard. 1952 would have been unreal! Love the history of this climb.

Knee jam, partial rest. Crux is the last 10 feet. To hear the probably embellished story about Joe Brown's first ascent in 1952 was so funny - especially coming from some local Brits.

Slab climbing on pitch one or two, depending on how you do the route. This climb is everything you could hope for - just 'brilliant'.

I thought the slab pitches (although pretty steep to be called 'slab') were solid and just a move or two of hard face. But, the last pitch is hard - er. I found the crux to be about 40'

Perfect shade in the summer after 3:00 or 4:00 pm. Good for Cowboys, not sure about Indians.

This really is Pure Pleasure. Some of the best rock to climb at 'City'. Nice approach, great hang-out area, good anchors, but . . . an easy down climb if wanted.

Route starts in the middle of the pic, just left of the tree and goes straight up to the highest point of Bath Rock (think Comici). Two pitches of old school fun after you get tired of clipping bolts

Early 70's. Baxter's was the go to place for a short day climb. I took about everyone who I could get in my car to climb it at some point.

This 'stuff' just gets harder and harder - but I can't quit. At my age (63 in photo), I pay a price for any of the physical routes I tangle with. After getting spanked on an 11c.
