Far to the left of the "newly bolted" routes past a large chimney system you will see a couple of beefy bolts going up some schist. This is the route. I believe there were about 6 bolts plus gear placements to a two bolt anchor on the face. I think there are then 5 bolts on the second pitch with some gear placements as well. Belay counter-weighted in a hole and walk off the back. The crux is clipping the 3rd bolt on the second pitch.


West face of old Baldy


Bolts + gear to 3 inches. One rack is plenty. It is also nice to bring some long slings
