The Resurrection of Kevin Bacon Boulder has two problems, which are on the consistently shaded steep side. Both problems share the same start (southwest directionally OR lower right when looking at the steep side) and first six opening moves which comprise the crux of both routes (which terminate on a jug), and then go their separate ways for topping out.

Start in a sit-down with right and left hands in two separate pockets on the lower right side of the steep side on 50-degree overhanging rock. Make a powerful cross move (see the pic) to a gaston/pocket, find the foot sequence, gain a left hand undercling, set your feet again, and make a powerful move to a gaston/slot. Bring your right hand up into the flake, followed by left/right. Rest up there, and then trend slightly left, using a left hand sidepull and the flake system with your right hand to gain the lip slopers, find the foot sequence that works best for you, and continue a mantel to small, less-positive-than-you-want features to the rest of the topout. Tread lightly on the slopers at the lip, and potentially rehearse with an easy TR thrown over the top to ensure success, as with any taller problem.

The top/side view photos contain the shared lower crux moves and for that reason, I have not included the photos of the secondary crux on either route.


It is on the shaded steep side of the boulder with a visible log/root that stick, cut off, out of the hillside (Southwest directionally OR lower right when looking at the steep side).


Two large size pads and ideally two or more small size pads with a competent spotter or two.
