Protection scarce first 20 feet, top rope only for now, could be bolted for a good sport route
Scramble to the top from the left side and set up anchor for top rope with two solid trees and a large crack that will accept a #2 C4 and/or a large hex. The route is the furthest left. Start just below a small tree where there is a nice belay ledge and a small roof for the belayer to hide from falling rock. Climb the rock stairway type of thing to the tree, the next 20 feet are dicey until a finger crack which leads to a ledge with a small bush. From there 20 feet of 5.8 to the top. Rap down or lower. Watch for falling rock.
Lower from top rope or rap down

I feel bad for belayers here cuz we kept pulling out large chunks of rock. This forced us to finish the trip early. But there are some possible routes to the far right of bald mountain that look promising.
good luck,I broke off a 8 foot slab at the beginning of this route a year ago. this place is good for learning to place gear if you walk around a little you will find some cool placements. what a death trap.It's Ball not Bald mountain.
FA was made by Heather Tobin. She clumbed it very well. Struggle through the first 20 feet past the little tree and you're in Groovy Town. Unexplored area with several possible cliffs in the area. Not a great climb, not a bad climb, but if you are in the area and have some time, why not. Belayer should wear a hat unless he/she likes sandy hair.
