Bynum Bluff: All routes are closed.
It's just as good as it's neighbor ~ 50' right, Waste A Bit but climbs a system of short discontinuous cracks up a face and through two small roofs on all bomber gear. A recommended route for the 5.10 leader in this area.
Climb the face up to and around the right side of some brush to the first 10- crux roof sequence (crack through small roof). From above, move right along a horizontal handcrack/rail to the face/corner and up to a second bulge/roof. Pull this on a bomber blue tcu in roof to gain a ledge with a gear belay. Currently there are 2 fixed stoppers.
I personally have not done this one yet but it climbs the lefthand weakness through the bulge at ~ 5.9 (not the steeper feature directly above the belay) to easier terrain and the top. All gear.
