Start on good hold at the base of overhang. Move out left to pinches and finish out the top.


At trail junction for BR Trail and EB Trail, hike east about 50ft and head down toward talus. You should see the back of Bulbous from above.

From the information I gleaned from trying it and reading comments on a photo from the Bulbous Left Center page, this starts on the same good hold at the base of the roof as BLC, but goes straight out to the left hand pinch and up, avoiding the crimp and V-shaped hold out right. It seems that this tops out to the left, perhaps by pulling around to the face instead of going straight up and manteling out of the roof. Seems like a very awkward eliminate.
