This route is best approached via the bouldering trail. When you reach the bouldering areas and the trail forks left or right walk straight up to the steep section of wall on Baldy.

CurleyP1 5.10d/11a 90ft Bolts

This route starts right of the unkonw Route and left of Combover. Gently scramble through the schist clipping the first 1 bolt in the schist. Follow the bolt line up the face climbing through several cruxes finishing on fun slab moves.

P2 5.10d 90ft Bolts

Follow the bolt line up to the top anchors. Moderate, fun movement up to a little roof. Pull a few crux moves and finish with more fun moderate movement.


lots of draws

Very unique and thought provoking climbing. Not the standard crystal pinching arthritis inducing climbing indigenous to the Rushmore/Needles area. Get out and do it.
