Route

Description 

Actually, on the south east side of Bath Rock - staring you in the face every time you drive up the road. Starts on a slab where a tongue of rock touches the ground. First pitch is 5.7 and has two or three places for protection. Belay in a scooped out dish below a steep headwall with a mid size cam.

Move right and climb the steep headwall using two crack systems for protection. Probably not a good pitch as your first 5.8 trad lead. A little grainie near the top, but should clean up if anyone ever does it again.

Belay on top by looping the rope around a large block on the edge.

Location 

Walk across the road and follow the trail along the east to south side of the rock. Just after a tree (in the picture), head up a tongue of rock looking for diagnoling cracks. Great face and crack climbing and all trad.

Walk down the rebar route on the back side.

Protection 

Cams to 3", a couple of small cams, full set of nuts. Runners to straighten out the rope drag.
