Climb the slabby arete with the help of small protuberance holds.


Located on the SW corner of the crag, just left of Broken Keg Blues.


Bolts to chains.

See comment under Broken Keg Blues.

BBA is actually to the LEFT of BKB and the two routes do not share an anchor. BBA does share an anchor with the route immediately to its left.

A bolt towards the top of the climb has been missing a hanger for several years, but the climbing at the bolt is easy 5th Class so it's not too bad as is.

Best sport route at Haystack.
