Description [Suggest Change]

This all comes from notes I made almost 30 years ago. Face and dike climbing, don't remember much else but there is gear to be had. 1) Start up face where the wall stops being undercut. Head left up face past 5 bolts and gear to the large scoop left of huge half moon shaped roof. A bolt and high nuts are the anchor. Climb dike above until it ends and your brain tells you to work left, as you continue up look right for another bolt. After that it is straight up blank but easy ground.

Location [Suggest Change]

West Wall of Big Baldy and is 2-300 feet downhill beneath a huge half moon shaped roof. First bolt is found where the wall stops being undercut.
