Extremely chossy bottom corner leads to face climbing above. Not recommended.
"Kaboom" makes the choss as it nearly kills your belayer ..."Kaboom" rating too..
In the middle section of the Ruins, climber's right of "The White Eyes Arrive"
Cams BD .5 to 2 down low, bolts higher. Shares anchors with 'The White Eyes Arrive"

I'd done it many years ago and I'm not so sure that this climb deserves a bomb rating. So, Dave Jones and I did Kaboom earlier this week and I thought that it was actually a lot of fun. I had only taken a very small rack but the crack at the bottom of the left facing dihedral took a couple of large stoppers perfectly. From there it's straightforward to reach out to the bolt on the face. There's probably a 10b move getting around the little bulge past the bolt but most of it is easier than that. The rock at the bottom isn't perfect but the pro is really good and the moves are fun. If you like placing pro, give it a try.
