Tennessee between bolts 1 and 2. (c)2009 Scott Nom...


Located on the right arete of a square boulder 100' to the left of Houser Buttress, this route faces the trail. Armageddon Tired (5.11a) is also located on the boulder, right and up from BCP.

Height dependent routes usually have a single move or two. BCP has no less than three, one for each bolt. A technical and entertaining route, but I wouldn't recommend it as a lead for anyone under 5'10".


3 bolts. Hand size cams/boulder tie off for anchor. Descend via chimney in center of formation.

Surely LEFT of Houser Buttress? Starting move and finishing move to big jug certainly easier if 6' tall. But middle bolt hi-step move seems be easier if you're short!

Short but challenging. If you're short, the start is a leap onto a flake then power up on a thin face, then a great, praying, finess "lunge" to the Final Jug!
