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.

Chrome DomeP1 5.10c 60ft Bolts

Start is to the right of Receding Fall Line. Gently scramble up the schist clipping a bolt with a long runner to protect standing up to reach the good rock and the second bolt. Pull the overhang up onto the face and the crystals above. The pitch end with fun moves on dinner plates to the Receding Fall Line anchors.

P2 5.11c 100ft Bolts

This pitch shares the first two bolts with Receding Fall Line but instead of breaking left, it heads straight up the headwall. Phenomenal climbing on dinner plates, horizontal seams, and a crystal crux all on steep exposed terrain! So Good!

When rapping off these anchors you may want to tie knots in the ends of your rope.
