Somewhat difficult start leads to an obvious dike which should be followed to the ledge above. Final crux comes on a sloping, grainy top out that is exciting to say the least.


Furthest right bolt line on Bowery Rock - Lower Eastside.

I thought this was the most enjoyable of the three routes. The climbing is more varied, with the sharp dyke definitely in play. The final pull over the bulge is a change of pace from the rest of the climb, adding to the fun factor. Jun 6, 2016

The least quality of the three but still worth doing I think, first bolt clip could be argued to be precarious with a nasty slide down and right to the ground. Nov 2, 2013

Not an especially good route with awkward climbing down low and a super grainy finish with friable holds. This route is not worth repeating IMO. Aug 7, 2010

Was heading into the crux near the top and blew off a larger foothold out to the left. Perhaps not critical but it allowed me to reach the good incut before heading onward to the grainy "beachball" top out. Quality route overall. Jul 20, 2010

Fun fun fun. Great exposure surmounting the final headwall. The middle of three finger-curling plates blew off but the good news is it still left a nice, square edge. The better news is, that hold is completely unnecessary for pulling the bulge. Great crux to finish this route! Jul 28, 2009
