Description

A great route that offers stemming, a 45 foot fist crack, and possibly the largest horn at the Bald. It is hidden from view from the ground and hidden from the 2nd pitches of other climbs. I believe has been untouched because of its elusiveness. It looks vegetated but the climbing by-passes all of the junk and stays pleasant the whole way. Hop and stem between a sharp arete, a fist crack, and another nice arete, passing a hug horn out right, and avoiding the vegetation. Rap from the tree 100 feet to the ground. Note: most of this climb is the 2nd pitch of Resurrection, 5.10.

Location

About 30 feet down and left of sea wolf, locate a small unpleasant gully with a large double trunked oak tree. This route starts above the tree; boulder up the broken stuff or shimey up the slab and you will see this obvious open book with two aretes and a crack

Protection

Up to 4" to slings on a tree

This looks cool..... but:

#1 hard to find, very confusing, even with the new guidebook

#2 large vegetation shrub right smack in the middle of the climb. Made me think it was not the right climb. Also it might be annoying and detract from the experience. It is a beautiful line though. Jul 16, 2016

I went up resurrection ramp to do this wondering why I'd brought all the big gear. Then I did this pitch and was glad I had the #4, the #3, and a couple of #2s. Feb 8, 2016

I went up the Res. Ramp then secound pitch into Egg Hunt. If you do this you miss the first 10' or so of the ground start but avoid the steep, leafy full pitch approach. The step across move it worth the climb itself (marginal piece at your feet but not as scary as Peek a Boo). The crack is the treasure though, save a couple #2's and 3 or 3 1/2 for the crack. 2 cruxy moves in the crack, very worthy in my book. Feb 25, 2013
