Description 

This crag is just up canyon from the Membrane. It is sometimes called the Upper Membrane but Bingo Baby Wall is its original name. This area is completely shaded year round and has many classic routes that range from 5.10b to 5.13. Most of the grades are 5.12. There are 2-3 of every 5.12 grade at the crag so it is an awesome place to get some 12's under your belt!


Getting There 

Park as for The Membrane about 1 mile past the National Monument visitors center. See the parking area here.

Cross the river (on a log with an overhead guide rope) and turn left on the trail (crossing a few timber steps).

Follow the trail as it meanders through the woods and heads downhill a little. You'll approach a short wall with a shallow cave to your right. Follow the trail (it is slightly indistinct at this point) left around the point of the wall and then head uphill on a steep, but well-built trail.

Bingo Baby is the obvious climbing area you will come to after steep switch backing for a while, followed by a slight downhill section as you cross a hanging gully, then up again to the wall.

I made a .docx file with the photos and a brief route description. I made it to be able to cut each pic, leave a tab on the left, staple them together and stuff them in your ruckman guide. Click download after clicking the link here and print them from Word, Google screws up the formatting on the last page if you print from their viewer. Bingo Baby Wall.docx

Anyone know anything about Medulla Oblongata or Cosmic Imperative? Most importantly rating.

According to an older topo I have from several years ago Medulla Oblongata is .12b/c and Cosmic Imperative is .11c.

Note that a few of the grades listed in the topo are a letter grade different than what the grades listed here on MountainProject are; I don't know exactly what the current feeling is on those two particular routes.
