Bad Actors M7, WI4, 70m                                                                                      F.A.  D. Ruddy, S. Elliott  Dec. 26/01
 
This is a great new climb found approx. 50m right of the ice climb "Curtain Call".  Its well protected and quite moderate so go have a burn. 
Pitch 1;  climb easy approach ice for about 30m to a nice ledge.  Look for a good seep under the overhanging wall for an ice belay.
Pitch 2;  climb out of a steep bay (very poor rock low down) and into an open book.  Avoid clipping the second bolt (in fractured rock) by instead clipping some fixed webbing hanging down from the third bolt.  Stem and hook your way up, over a small roof, past thin smears of ice.  Traverse left five meters to the ice and continue up 15m to a good stance.  10 bolts.  Rappel from v-threads.
 
Gear;    quick draws for 9 bolts, long slings, ice screws (including one stubby)
Approach;    as for Curtain Call
