Located on the center rock of the three Lower Muffins, Burnt Muffin involves a big reach to the left. Shorter people will have to be much more resourceful than their taller counterparts - as wingspan becomes a important issue.


2 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, the first bolt protects the crux very well, so it would be rather difficult to cause yourself any harm.

If you believe in your feet (smear), I think the crux move is not so hard.Send it!
