This route starts on Barney Rubble and climbs the crack to 20-25 feet and then trends right onto the face. If you want, you can place a couple nuts in the crack, otherwise it's a bit of a solo up to the first bolt. Not particularly memorable, but then again there aren't that many 10's at Red Wing.

  • RCM&W #30, p. 123

Takes the right hand bolted face finish after starting Barney Rubble.>>>


Medium nuts in the crack down low and then bolts up higher on the route where it trends right. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

This is a surprisingly good route with decent moves and very little traffic (because of the trad start). In my opinion maybe slightly harder overall than Jump Start and definitely more consistent.

Are you saying I should change my description Kris? Haha. I only did it once (July 2005), and I agree it was fun. Re-reading my description maybe was a little harsh. I miss Red Wing. What a great crag. Nice job cleaning up the Barn Bluff routes on this site Kris.

Why don't you come up for some climbing then? It's only a 3hr drive from where you are and there's Harbour Bar as a bonus.
