Leader on Crawling Up Roseanne's Belly. TR on Bim...


This is located on the arete to the left of the Bimbo in Limbo face and to the right of the Bush Loves Detroit dihedral and about 50' right of the prominent Stella buttress. This great route goes straight up the blunt arete surmounting a couple of bulges. I would have given it 3 stars on a Table Mountain only scale. You will immediately recognize the belly when you get there, I found it to be the crux but others find the upper bulge/roof to be the crux. Sustained by Table standards, this is not a one move wonder. Some finger-unfriendly holds, but overall one of my favorite routes in Golden. (Route #15 in the Rolofson guide, #175 in Hubbel.)

Sustained is the key word. There aren't really any super hard moves taken individually, but linking all the relentlessly thin and or rounded holds gets a major burn going.

Really nice route. This area is definitely redeeming Table for me.

Well-bolted. Sustained. Crux over the belly is slightly harder than the second one at the roof above. There really is not much of a rest after you ascend the belly, but the climbing is steep and hard.
