Grade Route

FA: Randy Kielbasiewicz, 2015

Crux is from ground to second bolt. Not a spectacular route. There are better routes for the grade.

Crux is on the bottom, recommend to stick clip first and second bolt. The route climbs to the left of the first bolt and a fall here will result in a groundfall unless you are comfortable at the grade.

Start in the gully in the 'Fallout Wall' on the left. Climb straight up to the third bolt through some relatively easy climbing. From here continue straight up ('Domestic Pressure' traverses left from here), the crux is getting to the anchors.

FA: Marc Bracken & John Wier, 1988

Start as for 'Domestic Pressure-Direct'. At the third bolt traverse left.

FA: Marc Bracken & John Wier, 1988

Pretty straight forward climbing, hardest section is from the first bolt to the fourth. After that it is very enjoyable 5.10 climbing to anchors.

FA: Peter Croft, Peter Reilly & Ziggy Isaac

Probably the best for the grade at Baldy. steep moves until you are past the 4th bolt.

The following routes start around the corner of the southern pinnacle.

Starts 4m left of 'Fallout'.
