Paul and James warming up on Bath Rock.

Description 

On the east face of Bath Rock, slab up the runout lower face on the left of the lower inclined area. Belay here. Move to the leftward trending flake/squeeze chimney that attains the saddle summit. Enjoy the stagnant bath water up top. Descend via the rebar steps on the west face.

Protection 

Large gear is needed for the second pitch, and there are no fixed anchors.

Great place to take rank beginners and/or non-climbers and let them TR from the large crack one-third the way up the east face.

Can be done in one pitch if you comfortable simu-climbing. Reminiscent of long mountaineering routes. Fun! Crux is probably getting off the ground.

Doesn't sound like a sport route...

This honestly was not that fun. Climbing up and behind the ginormous flake (if that's what you call it), was fun, but the climb from there was like walking up stairs. There is one interesting part at the top that gets vertical, but in my opinion doesn't make the climb worth it. Sorry to be a negative Nancy! (in all honesty though, it was the end of the day...so maybe I was tired.)

This climb and the Cowboy Route share a belay stance after the first 50 foot pitch. Starting the climb is probably the hardest couple moves on it. I'd call the start 5.5, or the infamous "5.4d."
