An exposed finish to any of the routes on the Bomb Bay, though it is prone to seepage and should be left until a dry spell. From the second pitch of Bomb Arête climb up and right over easy ground, past some slabs, until a damp little recess is gained. The climb proper starts from this recess.
From the recess gain another ledge (awkward) and from here step around a nose to a groove on the right. Climb this to where a large rock was dislodged on the first ascent (this is the ‘bomb’ that the cliff is named after). Finish up the left wall on good holds.
