Description

This is a nice, short and sweet climb on a slightly overhanging wall. Easy slab climbing up to the 1st bolt. There is a hard move to get started, and it stays challenging till the wall kicks back just above the 4th bolt. I thought there was another crux section near the 3rd bolt. BBB would deserve 2 stars if it were longer. The rock seemed quite sound.

Location

Bell Bottom Blues is on the wall below and right of Patio wall. It is at eye level when viewed from the road. BBB is the rightmost climb. When low flow, approach directly across the stream. Otherwise use Avalon's tyrolean and work your way downstream.

Protection

4 bolts to 2 bolt anchor shared with Bell Bottom.

Fun moves. Would get more stars if the rock quality were better. Mostly moss n' choss, nothing too loose. Thought it was at least a full letter grade harder than Bean Bagger up the hill, mostly for how sustained it is. Oct 10, 2011

It might clean up more, but my partner ripped down a large flake on this climb and I broke off a foothold on Bell Bottom that actually hit her. These climbs have been around a while but still feel fairly new. Be careful up there, especially on the approach slab. May 3, 2011
