Erica Bigio on the FA.


Starts from oak tree that forms a step. Works up and left into and up chimney then moves out of chimney and on to the face. Easier face climbing leads to great moves over a roof. Airy climbing leads to a final thin section below the anchors.


Just right of the chimney to the right of Makin' Muffins. Starts from an oak tree that forms the first step.

Did this on my way outta Windy Point today. No need to use the tree. The face moves up to bolt 1 are no harder than v0.

How hard is V0? According to a chart I found in the pad peoples (bouldering) section V0 is 5.10. We used the tree to keep the route more in the overall grade. Seemed silly to do the direct start as it seemed a good bit harder than the rest of the route.

A great addition to the area. Good fun. I thought pulling the bulge was 9+. Less physical but more thought provoking than ego donor

This climb just looks fun and I'm sure it can be. There was a heavy monsoon the day before and I think it loosened up pretty much the entire top section, especially where the bulge is. I found out afterwards that this route is new which is probably the reason for all the loose rock. I pulled off a piece the size of a banana without even torquing on it and my partner knocked off 5 large chunks. I found a nice rock to brace myself with about 20 feet away from the cliff so I could belay without as much danger of rock fall. The rock fall seriously effected my enjoyment of the climb but my partner loved it. He said he's coming back for sure. Memorable climb.
