RD snags the first Old Ballz ascent :)


Ramble up broken terrain (4 bolts) to gain the ledge at the base of the crack proper, then continue up hand/fist crack for 60 feet to the anchor.


Are You Experienced? is left of Watchtower.


9 bolts to an anchor.

Great short crack. The bolts on the main headwall are completely unnecessary. I found/used bomber placements at the same height of every bolt for the crack. A single set from 0.5 to 3 BD C4s is more than sufficient for a safe and fun venture on this thing. The first few bolts through the choss are nice to have in case something breaks...but some gear can be had (suspect rock, however).
