Basically an alternate start and finish to Bald Headed Babies. This route makes a more direct line up the wall, continuing up and right when BHB heads left to its belay.


Begins just right of Bald Headed Babies.


Bolts to chains.

Drew did you intend for this to finish direct at the 5th bolt on gear? Or does it traverse 10 feet hard left to share a bolt with Christopher of the Everglades and Bald Headed Babies and then traverses back right to finish at the last bolt in the small right facing corner/roof? The thin gear and holds are there for the independent/direct line into the small roof...

Hey B. If memory serves, it finishes up the small dihedral on bolts. Never used any gear. See photo:
