This is sunny most of the day, especially after 11am. The rock is generally good, but since it is a new area, there are a few loose flakes here and there.

Getting There 

This nice, little, vertical face is located just past Nomad Cave up a gully on the right. If walking from the tyrolean, go past Nomad Cave, take a right, and walk a few hundred feet up the gully. The cliff is on the right side of the gully.

Jay going for the onsight and 2nd ascent!

Pete's Kitchen 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Golden : ... : Breakfast Cliff
From the start, this climb is a little aggressive with small holds and not the greatest feet, but after you establish yourself on the wall it has some nice movement for the first half. Reward yourself on the second half with easy climbing to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

There is no tyrol currently in place. The best way to access this crag is to park at the pullout 0.5 miles further like described above, hop the guardrail just past the bridge, and find a faint trail that mostly follows the creek. You have a decent hike downstream before you will see the Breakfast Cliff and will pass two fixed ropes in place to get down and up one section of the hike.

Really cool addition to the Primo wall area. Definitely worth the visit!! Such good face climbing in a really nice setting. Primo area needed this area to happen. Thanks, Kevin!! Keep it up, my man.

I am thinking about changing the name of this wall to the Nothing but Crimps Wall, haha.

Came across this cliff by accident, today. Really fun routes and perfectly bolted. Props to the route developer for doing this cliff justice.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed what the wall had to offer. I think it came out pretty well. Thanks for your your input on the grades, it is hard to be precise because I climb in Clear Creek so much that I'm very used to the style. I do think that the routes, at times, may be a little stiff for the grades depending on your height and crimp ability.

Congratulations; nice addition to CCC. I'm surprised that it kicked up so many nice lines. We had scoped with it binoculars several years ago, were not really jazzed, and never humped up. Super job!! Have you thought about the crag way up the hillside - steep but solid rock.
