Nicole nears the top of Labrador Cupcakes, on the ...


Interesting and sustained climbing up edges.

Can be used as an approach\descent pitch for the hard routes on the formation just above this one.


Labrador Cupcakes is situated at the toe of a gigantic cliff band that is located just downstream and across the creek from the Renaissance Crag. This cliff is home to the historic route "Fun in the Sun" by Forkash & Anderson. For more details, visit here


7 lead bolts plus bolted rappel anchor (all of the 1/2" Rawl variety).

You would be hard-pressed to find a 5.6 sport climb of higher quality in SB. Consistent, good rock, and longer than it looks.

I think you'd be hard-pressed to find ANOTHER 5.6 sport route in SB ;)

An enjoyable route. But I wouldn't recommend it to a fledging 5.6 leader. There are opportunities to hit a ledge if you fall in the wrong place (close to the 4th bolt in particular) and the questionable rock quality doesn't help. The climbing is sustained and fun though
