This shares the start hold 'Barndoor' and splits left from he start and climbing into Bad Ladder.

Stand start on the chalked jug in the middle of the face, this chalked block is four feet off the ground, climb up and left to join Bad Ladder at the jug. To make the Jug from it the block you will test your core strength and finger strength. there are a couple ways to do this problem, it takes a little bit to find the one that feels V3.


On the road side face of the Barn Door Boulder, starts on the obvious chalked block, and moves into the visible jug on Bad Ladder.


Pad and spotter.

A better name for this would be 'Barn Door Indirect" or 'The Barn Ladder'. Anyone have an objection to me changing the name to something that represents the climb a bit better?

I changed the name to The Barn Ladder. Seems like a better fit.

It would be super helpful to see some pictures for these routes. I'll try to take some next time I'm out there and post them up so someone can edit them to show start holds and line of travel. I thought I was doing Barn Door Direct Direct.

I ended up crossing RH to a slopey crimp up high, got a higher left foot stood up and caught the jug LH. I didn't use the sharp crimp on the arete that Bad Ladder uses (the second/lh start of bad ladder).
