Comments: Old beta on this. This route doesn't share bolts. Also, easier than Sideshow, the ratings should be switched. Kind of hard to follow these routes since they are so close and heavily bolted.

Comments: A good one to improve balance moves at this grade. Moves that make you think around the 3rd-4th bolts. Very pleasant climbing after that.

Comments: I just discovered this route after doing most of the other routes at the Furnace over the last few months. It's very enjoyable. Two cruxes with some great movement in between. Worth it.

Comments: Yes to Chris and Kris. While I understand the desire to put up new routes and FAs I respect the wilderness and fragility of the BWCA too much to start cleaning and chalking it up. The growing season is so short there that it would take decades to undo any damage done now. I've been going every year for 9 years and have stuck to fishing, swimming and general lake-life, even while looking at some cliffs and wondering...

If you climb here, please no chalk and no cleaning. Climb it dirty.

Comments: My first 5.10b onsight! I didn't notice the beginning being too chossy. Maybe just a few spots and if you get sucked into the huge crack, but really not bad. It's mellow until the face above the crack, as the description says. The top part felt like small hold red rocks sandstone to me. Worth doing. Could be a bit soft for the grade. Enjoy.


Location: NV : Red Rock : First Creek Canyon : Romper Room : Buzz Buzz (5.4)

Comments: I have to agree with other climbers regarding this one. I went to the romper room area to get a bunch of easy leads in (new to lead) and ended up TRing instead and leading doobie dance. It is NOT 5.4. Awkward moves abound. My partner climbed it 4 times just to get used to it. I've climbed easier 5.8. I suppose if you want to get prepared for a long alpine climb it's a good teacher for things you might not expect. 5.5 or 5.6 and not a beginning leader climb.
