BETA PHOTO: Balconies Bumps viewed from The Crowley Towers
Nice quiet secluded spot with good views.
All of the routes on the Balcony Bumps were established after the publishing of Brad Young's excellent 2007 guidebook. To check out a more complete list of new Pinnacles routes visit the Mud and Crud website. mudncrud.com/forums/index.php?...
Use same approach as Crowley Towers. Take the climber's trail marked with carabiner signpost to the backside of the Flumes. Follow the Westside of the Balconies wall as it contours uphill. When you come around the end of the wall Crowley towers will come into view. Follow a distinct trail until you reach the final ridge where the trail turns left to the towers. At this point turn right (away from the Crowley towers)towards the bump like formations on top of the Balconies.

Great route the follows large and small pockets up a face on fairly good rock. Crux seemed to be around the eighth bolt where the route becomes vertical and there is a little bit more loose and hollow rock. Nice finish up over a vertical headwall feature on juggy holds. Very thoughtful bolting on this route. Bolts right where you want them....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
