BaDaBoom is the right of the two sport routes on the main South face - ascending immaculate granite. It was installed solo, from the ground up, and on hooks and as a result has a few more clips in its 70 ft than it would have received done from the top down. Run up easy terrain to a short blank face, catch a rest from a good jug, then exit the jug making a make a long (!), powerful reach to a tiny divit. Pull up onto the face to chase a pair of nearly parallel incipient seams via technical frictional footwork. BaDaBoom picks out bullet proof stone with technical, interesting climbing.


Nine draws and a rope.
