A Braille Institute climber on Bakersfield Bomb at...


this is a face route that is OK and as with the others on this formation not that spectacular. But worthwhile if in the area or just wanting to do a shorter face route for some reason. There are a few easy to moderates on this rock and one can bang them off in a heartbeat if "ticking" off routes...I would not go out of my way however....


two bolts, anchors (?), walk off or rap
