Peyton Hassinger leading Barnie's Corner. Oct. 31,...

Description 

The route ascends a crack inside the large corner to the right of Roof Burner. Go up the initial large steps and commit to an awkward bulging hand crack (5.10a). Above the bulge the route eases off to 5.7-8. The rock is solid throughout the crux but becomes rotten higher up and feels like climbing bookshelves in a library (belayers beware). It is also difficult to place any reliable pro in the upper section. The best way to finish the route is to continue up the corner until it is possible to traverse diagonally left onto solid rock and clip the anchors for Roof Burner.

The moves through the crux are interesting and fun and it would be a great climb if it wasn't for the loose rock above.

Did this route earlier in the summer. Definitely goes 10a/b on gear. The crux is the bottom 15 feet, so if you make it to the rotten rock, you are good.
