Description 

These routes are best approached via the bouldering trail. When the trail T's left or right to go to the various bolders just walk straight up to Baldy.

P1 65ft Bolts and Gear5.7 This left most route. Starts with a couple of bolts and then heads into the crack that takes gear up to 2.5 inches. Clip one more bolt after the crack ends and then to the anchors.

P2 95ft Bolts and Gear5.10d/11.a Continue up the crack placing gear up to 2.5 inches until you reach the arête. Clip bolts on the arête as you stem up the grove. At the last bolt on the arête pull over onto the face and head up to the little roof on the headwall. Clip bolts and enjoy the fun moves to the top.

This route needs a little cleaning. Great warm up.

When rapping off these anchors you may want to tie knots in the end of your rope.

The second pitch is one of the best pitches on the granite of the greater Harney Range. Totally worth the walk. Few real hard moves but still committing. Put on you finest Phyllis Diller and get Wiggy!

The second pitch is the money pitch. Its a little dirty starting into the second but turns into a wild ride once you get out of the crack and onto the face.
