Routes in The Calm Boulder

Description

This is an excellent boulder with two stout lines in the main gully on the backside of Baldy. It also has one easier line. The left-most route is "The Calm Before the Storm" V8/9 FA Greg Parker; the route to the right of this route is "Wife's Wrath" V8 FA Greg Parker; the route to the right of "Wife's Wrath" is called "Deceptively Easy" V2. The first two routes are both three star problems (***) the last route is fun, but probably gets no stars. "The Calm Before the Storm" is crying for a sit down start. There is a low-left rail that could mave into the low pocket and then up. This SDS would be V11/12 no doubt.

Getting There

From the backside of Baldy, simply walk down the gully in the main area. The boulder is on the left. In order to find the backside, you may need a little local beta. The gully is just down the hill from "Scary Trees" V8, if that helps at all.

Yes, just down the hill to the left. You first pass the boulder with Blake's V6 and V7 and my Jumper, V4. It's the next boulder just to the right of the Jumper boulder. The pocket is very obvious on Calm (even though you don't use it on the stand up). I think Dave has pictures of the boulder he will post. Go check it out! Jan 9, 2004
Is this near "Jaba?" Jan 9, 2004
