The Muffins are numerous large boulders approximately 35 feet in height, surrounded by smaller rocks with fun, powerful boulder problems on them. Mid-Muffin is a smallish but somewhat intimidating blob, with several slightly overhanging routes. Three of these are topropes (5.13b to 5.11d), while "Muff Diver" (5.10b) on the right hand side makes for a zesty 2-bolt lead. The Lower Muffins are a group of three similar-sized rocks, with chimneys separating them, and are host to three sport routes in the 5.10-5.11 range. There is also one sport climb (and unknown trad climbs?) on the Upper Muffin, though I know nothing about the difficulty of this climb.
Estimated hike in: 15 minutes. Distance: 0.8 miles
