Look for a pair of bolted lines on the left side of a chimney on the Blazing Fin. Makin Muffins is the right hand line. Stick to the right and follow the bolts to the chains. Fun route with interesting moves.


bolts (approx 7 or 8) and chain anchors.

I wouldn't call it 5.8, but this is at the upper end of 5.7. It's a long way to the first bolt and a long way down Willow Canyon if you roll off the cliff.

I think this route is actually pretty fun. Great moderate slab climbing. The first bolt is on very solid terrain i would say.

The first bolt is a good 20 feet up. While the climb is only 5.7, if you don't make it to the first bolt you're looking at a pretty nasty ground fall and tumble down the mountain. While I'm not an advocate of overbolting, it doesn't make much sense to put up a 5.7 sport route that you have to solo the first 20 feet of. Maybe I should have brought a stick clip, but a bolt at 10-15 feet would make more sense to me.

I agree with David - high first bolt and iffy moves just below and above it. Freaked me out a bit.
