Description

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.

Comb OverP1 5.10c 90ft Bolts



This route starts 20 ft right of Wiggy on the right side of the tree. Start on the overhanging schist and then head directly up over the bulge on the face above pulling the first crux. Once over the bulge traverse to the right heading to the steep arĂȘte via some cool holds.The arĂȘte has great exposure. Stand tall, make the moves, and the bolt will be there before you know it. FUN STUFF. Anchors are just below the roof.

P2 5.10c/d 90ft Bolts

Interesting moves right off the anchor. You can clip the first bolt before you leave the anchor. Move up the slab to the roof and up and over for a crux. Follow bolt line up the steepest part of the wall to the anchors.

Draws == some longer draws might be nice

Photos

Some longer quick draws are good for the first pitch. Don't let the tres-amigos mess with your head on the first pitch... You'll recognize them when you see them! A must do, a bit along the spicy salsa order but more along the high honesty line than into the PG-13 zone. And don't forget to Comb Over with your finest Mexican hair tonic. Sep 19, 2005
