The finish of Boom! is on perfect stone.

Description 

The continuous line of tufas, flowstone and pockets suddenly peters-out at the bulge at 3/4 height (crux). Sustained, steep, and continuously interesting, it's one of the best routes on the wall.

Location 

In the mouth of the hurricane cave is a large boulder. Stick-clip #1. Stand on the boulder to reach the starting holds and jump onto the wall. (Shorter people can stack a block or two.)

Protection 

Nine Ti bolts plus anchors.
