Raphael Slawinski and Sarah Hueniken established a new mixed route near Field, B.C. last week. The mixed-protection mixed-rock-and-ice line climbs up right of Twisted WI5 and left of the new Nasty Habit M6 WI5.

To get to Blob Blob Blob, either climb the first pitches of Twisted to traverse a ledge. Ian Welsted and Bryce Brown linked the new route with the first steep pitch of Nasty Habit for a variation they called Nasty Blobs.

TW: Twisted / S: Nasty Habit start / S1: Nasty Habit optional start / BBB: Blob Blob Blob

The first pitch heads up M6 to steep ice blob climbing up an arete on pitons, a bolt and some cams. You then head into a corner and more pitons and up to a bolted anchor. The second pitch climbs steep M6+ past six bolts to an ice exit.
