DescriptionBam Bam is a truly outstanding route that climbs a clean, gently overhanging face on the best rock East A. has to offer. For Durango standards, this is difficult face climbing at its finest! The route breaks down into two distinct sections: the mellow first half of fun and technical 5.12- climbing on vertical rock; and the brutal and desperate second half where the angle kicks back and the climbing is full on till you clip the chains.
Between bolt #3 and #4, one could bypass some difficulty by following a crack out right then traversing back left on slopers. Resist the urge, and stay true to the line, the climbing is fun and the rock is fantastic.
It should be noted that I did not bolt this line. It is an old project originally equipped long before I moved to DGO, I believe by Joel? Given the quality of the line and the strong group of climbers that frequent East A, I am blown away that it has not seen more attention. Hopefully this post will get people psyched!
