DescriptionA shorter, stouter version of his old man. Bamm-Bamm starts on big jugs that lead to a small roof with a seam that can set you up for a perfect layback move that leads to jugs. Some people opt to skip this beginning crux by staying to the slabby steps to the right.
After pulling the roof (or not) work yourself onto a ledge system and start making your way up the arete. Stay right of the bolts if your in the mood for a potential beatdown or stay left of the bolts for a more Betty-like experience.
ProtectionSince it is right next to everyone's favorite 5.8, this climb is bolted closely with the beginning leader in mind.
While the bolts are close together for your confidence and convenience they are not TOO close, however, keep in mind that Z-clipping is possible on any climb if you don't know the proper rope handling technique.
