Description

This route is dedicated to my recently passed 92 year old father, Bruce Beh. He got me into the mountains.

The start of the route is uphill, left of Raging Bull, next to a small cluster of evergreen trees.

The route consists of two, tricky 5.12a cruxes separated by a decent rest. The upper crux is a bit tougher than the first and finishes with some pumpy moves on big holds above the final roof to the anchor.

Easy 5.9 moves lead to a roof the first crux. Once above the roof, you will get big holds on a flake and a rest under a bulge. Getting over the bulge, up to the next roof, is the harder 12a section.

Location

This is on the far left side of the SW Face just around the corner, to the right, from where Deserted Cities Of The Heart is located on the West Face and left of Raging Bull.

Protection

10 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor with chains.

Excellent, fun climbing on a continuously steep route! Though the two 12- roof cruxes are powerful with less than obvious sequences, the final 11+ big reach at the top is probably the redpoint crux due to accumulated fatigue by that point. Nice job, Chris! Oct 25, 2015

Good addition to the cliff, excellent climbing. First overhang felt more difficult and is significantly longer than the second overhang as it really is not over until you are stabilized on the resting flake. There is one last tough section with a big move right at the very top just before the anchors. Aug 9, 2015

Another high-quality Chris Beh addition to Flatiron sport climbing. Maybe ChrisÂ’ best route to date; Big Bruce, named in dedication to ChrisÂ’ Dad, Bruce Beh, has all the requirements of a great route: position, length, quality movement, and a building pump with the crux high on the route. Hard to grade due to the many rests, probably 12a/b for an onsite grade. Rock quality is surprisingly good, which cannot be said about the neighboring lines. Nov 9, 2014
