This route on the East face of Bath Rock begins in an alcove behind a prominent juniper tree near the sign "Bath Rock." Climb up and then right following some slanting cracks into a prominent dihedral. Follow the dihedral to where it steepens and set a belay. Gear belay using larger cams.Several options present here, but following line of least resistance upward initially left to a crack and trending right, up through several overlaps to a notch at the top of the rock. Gear anchor. Also described in the Bingham guidebook, and rated 5.5*


East face of bath Rock.
Descend the rebar route on the SW face.


No fixed gear, bring cams to 4". Several smaller cams and nuts are helpful, and longer runners to reduce rope drag.
Not a bad beginner's trad route to lead or follow. My son and I did this with a single 60m rope that put us just about 10 feet from the top at a nice boulder to sling as a belay station. From there it was an easy scramble to the top and then left to descend the rebar route.

Need to make good use of slings to decrease rope drag. Very mellow, well-protected route. Jun 13, 2011

Very, very mellow. Most of the route was barely 5th class, with a 5.5 "crux." Once on top, it took us a little bit of wandering to find Rebar Route. If you're not confident, it's a good idea to locate the descent route before getting on top.

There is also a single huge iron ring at the top. I have no idea what it's there for, but you might be able to rap off it––? Sep 8, 2013
