As you approach the area, you will see several blocks near each other. Baserkerville Rock is the leftmost of these formations. This route follows the crack furthest to the right on Baskerville Rock. Face climb for 15 feet until you reach a stance where one can place bomber pro. This is where the crux begins. The beauty of this route is that you'll get great stances to place gear, but the climbing never really eases off either. Enjoy!
finger-size pro to 0.75 inches. Large gear (2-3 inches) helpful for the belay or TR anchor.

i was surprised that nobody had many any comments about this route - i really enjoyed it. short and sweet, fun climbing, good gear. if i remember correctly, a couple of hand-sized cams will make it easier to set a belay at the top - looking up at the crack from the bottom you may be tempted not to bring any. down climb off of the backside and hang a left around the formation to get back to the base.

Fun moves and good gear make this a route to do when in the area. Don't miss the nearby Tossed Green and some of the great routes at the nearby White Cliffs of Dover.

The FA was actually John Long, Janet Wilts, and Dan Dingle in April or May of 1977. John lead, I belayed, Janet went second, and I went third.

Excellent route. Nice approach to refresh you if you have a light hangover.

Quality route with good pro. Exciting. Might want to take some bigger gear for the anchor up to a 3.5 camalot.

Fun route on good rock. Not quite as good as the nearby tossed green.

Good route, good pro, with 3.6 interesting moves. Probably a bit harder than the area classic Tossed Green from a technical standpoint.
