The Creek Slab's Bilge Pump.

Bastille - M-F closures. Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>


This is a classic problem that ascends the leaning finger rail on the right, east side of the severe, south overhang of the boulder, up and out left to the lips polished prow. An airy, balancey, layaway, high step move is used to gain the summit slab.


This is located on the south overhang of the boulder, which used to be submerged at its base until recent post flood of 2013 conditions, which washed a landing beach below. This boulder will most likely be submerged during summer meltoff.


Pads and good spotters.
