Right of "Psychobabble", beginning halfway up the wall, is a large, bombay-shaped chasm. Use any of a number of crack systems - from the start of "Psychobabble" all the way over to "The PATC Lieback" - to access the large ledge at the base of the chasm; this ledge leads deep into the bowels of the wall. Easy chimneying (or harder if you head deeper inside) leads up to an ancient eyebolt, which probably should be ignored in favor of a crack on the opposite wall. The chasm pinches off, forcing you out left onto the face, with liebacks up to the finish - and, again, ignore the obviously ancient bolts on the face.

3 out of 5 stars Pretty fun...bring big pro.

Took advantage of the dry, cool weather (rare in July, though common this summer) - which made Bombay completely dry. I used a crack directly below it leading to a vegetated ledge.
