This is the leftmost route on the southern face of the Bay Lee wall. The hardest moves are at the start. Some interesting moves wiith great hand and foot holds. Of the two single pitch routes on this face, this is the better one.
6 bolts, one set of cold shuts and one set of cold shuts with chains shared with Butthead.

90-95' (only had 10' left after lowering on a 60m rope), 6 bolts, cold shuts and a 2ed pair of cold shuts with chains 1.5' right of the 1st pair. 2 Cruxes, one passing the 1st bolt with thin feet and sloping crimps for hands. Top crux is between the last bolt and the chains. Can put in a bomber medium-large nut or medium-small hex in your choice of 3 perfect constrictions about 5' above the last bolt to protect the kinda exposed upper crux move(s). I did not have it with me but would have put it in if I did. Mostly sustained 5.6 climbing with a 5.7 crux. Fun and longer that the other routes on Barnum Rock. Can link with "Cornholio" the 2ed pitch to the tree 30-35' above the chains with a #5 BD nut, #4 and #5 Metolius Power cams, and a #7 BD hex and a sling for the tree. Or climb "Cornholio" as a 2ed 30' trad pitch at 5.6. Then a 3ed pitch of 5.5 to the summit.
