Start between the pine tree at the lowest corner on the right side of the West Wall, and climb up the crack and ledges to the high first bolt for the first route on the West Wall. Supplemental gear in the crack can be placed if the exposure to the gully is an issue.

Angle up and left clipping the second bolt on Storm Surge. Pass under the Storm Surge roof pinching the sharp corner on the left side of the roof to get to the 3rd bolt for Eye of the Storm.

Continue on fairly sustained holds to the 4th bolt for Eye of the Storm and on to the 4th bolt from the F.E.M.A. route.

Work your way up and left to the last bolt for Eye of the Storm located in the black water streak.

Finish with one or two moves to the flake and easier ground up and left to Balloon Boy anchors.


Starting at the lowest point of the West Face, you can see a natural line starting in the crack below the first route on the right side of the wall then angling up and left under Storm Surge's roof and finishing at the anchors for Balloon Boy (4th route on the wall).


6 lead bolts, 2 bolt anchor (of Balloon Boy). This was bolted on lead.
