Jon Scoville in the pumpy section.

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


A technical start with good, but tricky holds to the first bolt, then a pumpy bit to get established into the open book above. Once established, cruiser climbing to the chains.


The left-center section of the Bingo Baby is dominated by a large roof fifteen to twenty feet off the ground.

At the left side of the roof is a trough/seam (essentially an open book) with bolts on the left wall. This line climbs the technical bit up to the trough and then continues up the trough to chains on the left side.


4 bolts to chain anchor. Stick clip the first bolt.

The fist bolt is missing on this route. The start was harder than it looked and took a grounder with the second bolt in my face (good thing its a flat landing). Be solid at the start or bring a stick clip.

I brought a stick clip. Its not worth the fall.

I thought this route was pretty fun. Had some interesting tension moves down low and fun crack climbing higher up. Folks who climb cracks will probably enjoy it more than pure sport climbers.

Definitely stick clip this thing. It's sketchier at the bolt than it looks from below. Great route otherwise!
