Just left of the excellent Duck, Bad Egg is also a technical face climb, but has a couple unique cruxes to make it distinct from its neighbor.

Climb up the left edge of the mouth of the cave to a thin reach left and up a small tufa to gain a slab. An exposed balancy move here leads to fun, technical face and another tricky crux at about 2/3 up. Excellent and fun, this one felt a bit bolder than Duck with a couple tough moves above bolts.


See Wonderful World for a description on how to get to this area. This is the 2nd route left from the Wonderful World dihedral.


Bolts to a 2 bolt fixed chain anchor. Easy to top rope, but a bit bolder to lead. Duck is a less spicy lead.
