This route climbes the face right of Barfy's Favorite
. Listed as 5.7R in the NC3 Poudre Canyon Guide, I personally feel it's solid 5.8. The run-outs are a little heady, but you do get good gear in a few prominent horizontal cracks that cut across the face. Aim for the obvious round flake above and pull onto easier ground shared with Barfy's Favorite
. Tread lightly above the last horizontal - the rock is a little suspect, especially higher up.
Continue for two pitches on Barfy's Favorite
or Judy's Jaunt
Standard Greyrock rack to 2 inches. Tricams may be useful for use in the shallow, horizontal cracks.

This is a serious pitch with insecure climbing on suspect rock well above your gear. Still, it's an adventurous outting and worth a star.
