extending the draw on the 2nd bolt is most helpful...

Description 

Good pockets, long reaches and left hand side pulls characterize this short but powerful route. While not super steep, Baghdad will leave you gasping for air. Steep climbing on good holds. A longer draw on the second bolt is helpful. The pocket at the fourth bolt is very positive.

The route is very sustained for the first four bolts and there really aren't any rests. Crux is probably going from the third to the fourth bolt.

Angle eases off after the fourth bolt.


Location 

Fifth route to the right of Division (up the hill from Division).


Protection 

6 bolts and the chains

Get to work right off the ground. steep for the first 4 bolts then lets up. this climb requires power off sloping jugs with tenuous clipping stances. very fun.

This is a very exciting route. Technique is key to keep from pumping out. It is very powerful from the ground to the fourth bolt, so be efficient. I recommend a double draw on the second bolt; it will be very helpful.
