Description 

Nothing to difficult here. You can go straight up to the Army cable that is bolted in about half way up the main wall or you can wander left and right to find interesting holds. There is a flake and some places to place pro so it is a good place to practice leading with pro. These routes are often linked with routes that go all the way to the top.


Location 

Starts at the base of the main wall in about the middle. Look for the red painted squares with numbers in it.


Protection 

There are bolts and you could go up the Army Cable Route and fix a top rope but it's better to lead it. You can place pro too. A few nuts and a sling or two will work.

I found it fun to start further towards BC3 and work over to this route.
Late morning and early afternoon in the cold be prepared for some wet rock with the ice up top melting.
I'd remove the sport tag on it was there are no bolts on the rout, just at the top for an anchor.

Does this route go all the way to the top?

BC2 doesn't really go to the top but you can get there. The most direct line is to use Overhang Approach. Just check out the route on MP.com. It's easy climbing but fair warning....there's no real protection. You could also make your way up the Army Cable or traverse over onto BC9 from which you can pick your way to the top on.
