Muffin Top, Trout Creek
|Seasonal Raptor Closure starts Jan 15 each year; No top access - private land MORE INFO >>>|
This offwidth testpiece starts with about 10' of moves on an inside edge, then it's hand stacks, armbars, calf locks, and knee locks to the tippy top. Enjoy!
just right of The Long March. Shares the anchor.
Many #4s, #5s, and #6s

Don't know where you'd put a #4 on this. It's 5's and 6's all the way. To protect the mantel onto the pillar at the top, you can also place something the size of a #2 and/or a piece in the .5 range.

I tried leading this about 6 or 7 times in 2003/04 and never got it clean. Guess I'm not a 5.10 climber ;-)
We called it "Small Fry", but I guess the name didn't stick. There was a 20" x 20" x 1" plate flake remarkably unbelievably balanced on a tiny edge that we knocked off in a very memorable near miss on the first attempt, about 15 feet below the top; yikes.

I climbed this in October 2006 when in Trout Creek with a group of mostly Seattle-area climbers. Our group was pretty confident it was unclimbed at the time and had not heard of any previous names. Lara Kellogg, Mark Westman, and I had just been climbing together in Yosemite and my original name of Lara's Muffin Top was a joking reference to her ongoing critique of the dubious fashion choices made by Valley visitors. It's no wonder the name has been shortened considering that Lara never had a muffin top.
