Description Suggest change

This route is the second bolted line left of Under the Table, and is identified by the letters "BM" on the rock just right of the route. I don't know the real name of the route, so I'm calling it "BM Route" in prefererence to "Unknown 5.9".

Locate the smooth tan slab of Under the Table, go 40' left, and spot the letters "BM" about 20' up the rock. The route starts here.

Climb up to the second bolt, move right to a hand crack, and continue past 3 more bolts to the anchor. The start can be done either left or right of the bolt line; both variations are about 5.9. Going straight up is somewhat harder.

Update: per David Mills: in about 2008-9, the HUGE flake making up the middle portion of this route fell off, which also causing the fifth bolt to be relocated slightly. The change this route underwent is the "hand crack" created by the flake is no longer. The 2 options really for this route are stemming and staying in the choss gully/chimney to the left, probably 5.9- OR staying directly on the arete without stemming in the choss left, this is probably 5.10+ish.

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
