Who's on First


Possibly the Bald's longest route and offers a lot of variety and exciting moves.
P1: 130 ft 5.10-, slab past 3 bolts and gear to a high step move and a 2 bolt anchor
P2: 150 ft 5.9+, pull the roof at the bolt, climb up and trend left over some mossy stuff to an obvious right facing corner. Gear belay at the nice ledge over the corner system
P3: 80 ft 5.11a, take the exposed head wall past 5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, double rope rap to the P1 anchors


Starts 40 feet right of 'Spring Training' on an easy slab at the far right end of Left Field. You might be able to see the first bolt from the ground. Depending on your approach, this may be the first climb you get to as you take the steep gully to Left Field.

The route over all is a great multi-pitch addition to the area. I'd have to say 2nd pitch is the best, more engaging and cerebral. The 3rd pitch is just a clip up on friable edges similar to 7 year itch. I left some fixed gear at the 2nd belay and rapped the route with a single 70m.

Climbed this one today...i removed some suspect fixed gear at the end of P2. Two double 60m raps get you to the ground.

T, thanks for cleaning that nut anchor off the route.

This line was originally Mike and Tim's idea, and they had already done the first pitch when I joined in. I helped out with some of the second pitch and belayed on the 3rd (which I thought was by far the best). Later on we cleaned up the 2nd pitch some more in hopes that it would help, which I guess it did. Glad it's getting some traffic - I honestly thought no one would ever walk that far to climb it.
