Description

Bombardment shares p1 with Pleasant Street, a quick test of wits on a wandering, run-out 5.6 slab that terminates at a large ant-eaten oak on a slanting ledge below an overlap. Start p2 by stepping up and right over the overlap. The p2 crack climbing is an easily protected and fun place to learn jams and ween yourself off of the plentiful face features for footholds.

Location

Starts at the far left end of the lower left slabs, at a short headwall. From atop the first ledge, step right, protect, and follow the white dike to the right side of the ramp. From the top of the route, move north (right) about 40 feet to rap anchors, continue to top on any number of routes, or walk left along base of cliff until you can round the corner into the woods and to the top (about 10 minutes to walk off).

Protection

P1 is considered 5.6 R/X, but can be protected reasonably* with double ropes. P2 protects very well with nuts and small-to-medium cams.

( * Ed. comment: reasonably for the follower; if there's a way to protect the moves up the dike for the leader, please describe! R. Hall Adm.)
