Babob is the left most route on the Northwest face of Veiny. It is located to the left of Existential Angst. Climb up moderate face to a crux at a good size bulge. Pull through the well-protected bulge with crystal crimps up to good holds.


4 bolts to a two bolt anchor. The anchor is not set up for rappels, so either traverse off 3rd class to the left, or traverse right to an anchor with chains.

This climb is no gimme as the bulge near the top is quite tough. Seems a fair bit harder than the other 10s in this immediate area. The body position is awkward, and the left hand crimp there is a puzzling hold.
