Short, steep and juggy climb that serves as a good warm-up. Climb 20' or so (no pro) up a slab (5.4-ish) to the 1st bolt where the wall turns to vertical. Up this clipping 4 bolts along the way until the wall kicks back. Head easily up and right to the anchors.

Beware of some flaky rock and a creaky flake just right of the 3rd bolt.


Bell Bottom is on the wall below and right of Patio wall. It is at eye level when viewed from the road. BB is the leftmost climb. When low flow, approach directly across the stream. Otherwise use Avalon's tyrolean and work your way downstream.


4 bolts to 2 bolt anchor shared with Bell Bottom Blues.
