|Bath Rock - Southwest
Wander up the slab or traverse from climber's left to the base of the route which starts in a left-facing corner with a small crack in the back. You then traverse up and right along a 3-4 foot crack to another short crack/small corner that leads to the bottom of the face/pillar that takes you to the top.
This route is situated left of White Huecos and right of Calamari on the southwest side of Bath Rock. This section of climbs is situated to climber's right of the Rebar Route.
Small gear in some questionable placements. There is one bolt one the face towards the top. Guidebook indicates anchors at the top but I didn't see them. This can be top-roped by using natural protection in horizontal cracks up top but I don't know the length of rope needed if one wants to belay a TR from the bottom.

Well within the grade, this was a nice warmup on what was to be a warm september day. We walked off down the rebar route, no recollection of chains at all.

A fun route. In the shade until noon. Good but creative protection. Suprised it is not more popular given how many people are lined up to do Rollercoaster and/or Colossus.
Also, there are NO belay bolts on top. Twenty feet back from top out is a 3" crack. Easy walk down.

This climb is pretty fun. Unfortunately the approach and the descent decrease it by a star. You basically climb up half the rock before you start the route. There are also no bolts at the top, thus you must down-climb the rebar route.
