Three pitches of excellent Rumbling Bald face climbing.
P1> Climb up the left side of the giant flake or romp up the wide gash that forms the right side of the feature. Move left and climb up to the first bolt. Trend left on easier ground aiming for a double bolt belay. There are slight variations on this pitch making it feel easier or harder. 100 ft.
P2> Climb straight up to a bolt. Move left then up and traverse right. Climb up and left following a seam which changes into a nice crack/left facing feature(amazing). Follow this to another double bolt belay. 100 ft.
P3> Climb straight up discontinuous features aiming for a bolt. Move left then climb straight up to a right facing flake/roof. Rail right on great holds(steep) with great exposure. Gain a stance and step up to another double bolt belay. 90 ft.
Note: The second rap takes every bit of a single 60m rope. Watch your ends!
Also be sure and take some brass, it might save your a**.
Up the hill and left of Southern Boys. Starts on a pedastel beneath a huge flake, pasted to the wall.
