BETA PHOTO: Tootsie Roll and Under the Table

Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>


This is the climb immediately left of Under the Table. It goes up a narrow buttress that looks like two Tootsie Rolls side by side. I don't know the real name of the climb, but I'm calling it Tootsie Roll in preference to "Unknown 5.8".

Locate the smooth tan slab of Under the Table, and go 20' left to find the start of Tootsie Roll.Climb 25' up easy rock to the first bolt. Continue up the buttress to the top.

Nothing special, but an OK warm-up climb.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I haven't led anything at this difficulty (my most recent "hard" lead was 5.7), so this one felt great. Nice, fun little route on super positive holds. Great for beginners.

Nice easy lead, not even polished like others of the grade here. Beginners should bring some gear though. Not many bolts....

Be ready for (typical) runout to get to first anchor 20+ feet up! Otherwise lots o' fun!
Nice positive holds even as it got warmer....
