Flight of the Bumblie is a primarily traditional route that climbs huge patina edges to a blank spot which then follows a hand sized crack to a set of chains.

Start steep on big edges running it high and slightly left towards a bolt. Pass this section (crux) and follow a shallow crack through a steep bulge passing placements towards the New York is Not The City anchor.


This route lies in the middle of New York is Not The City and Bumblie Takes a Tumblie The start is marked by the smallest recess in between landscaped trees.


Slings, stoppers, and cams to three inches.
