Nina Samaha on Cake Walk.

Description 

Classic crack climbing at T-Wall, Cake Walk is another popular three-star route.

Starts in a nice left-facing corner. Move up to a small roof, then continue up a beautiful hand/finger crack to the top.

Location 

Starts about 10' right of Razor Worm.

Protection 

Small to medium gear. Newly-installed ring anchors at the top alleviate the former hazards of coming up short on rap from the tree at the top of Razor Worm.

I once climbed this and found a little rattlesnake about halfway up!

This was the last route we climbed on my first day at the T-Wall. It is one of the best pitches I've ever done!

60m barely gets you down, depending on manufacturer. Recently saw a girl deck when her partner let the rope slip through the belay plate.

Great climb, kind of a "2 move wonder".

This climb is classic. Sustained, beautiful climbing. Get a rest before you hop on this cause it's a long way to a rest spot. The finger crack crux is awesome

Wonderful line on perfect sandstone! Small blue BD protects the crux. Have seen snakes on the small ledges between this route and Razor Worm. Avoid the line and awkward start of Golden Locks and jump on this SE classic!

Just don't leave any valuables in your car. While climbing there high up on the rock we heard a faint sound in the distance only to discover our windows had been broken out, tires slashed, and everything stolen out of our vehicle. Great climbing - Bad juju !
