A direct start to Baboo-Baboo with some hard climbing.

The crux of this route is doing Baboo after a good rest, so either Baboo is 8a, or they're both 7c+.

Have you done the start???!! Baboo is a breeze after this.

I didn't have a problem with the start, but being a bit short found the move on Baboo a nightmare.

I agree thev start is ok once you have it sorted and the redpoint crux is the bulge of Baboo after the good rest. This is a great route and the way Baboo should have been done originally.

Found this definately harder than baboo. The start moves and subsequent laybacking up to the tufa sap your strength reserves sigificantly more than baboo. Great route!
