Description

The Cake Walk Area might be the most popular spot at Humphrey's. Many of the routes were put up as adventurous horror-shows, but some have since been cleaned and retrobolted (with permission from the first ascentionists). While Humphrey's has a reputation for scary routes on loose rock, this wall proves that a misconception. These routes are mostly clean, mostly well-protected, and super fun.

This wall gets a lot of sun and stays pretty dry; therefore, it's a great winter/early spring/late fall climbing destination.

[ Note: There's a "quick topo" of the "Main Cliff, Left Side" posted on the main Humphrey's page. R.Hall ]

Getting There

Once you get to the wall, head left. The Cakewalk area is a clean, open face bound by buttresses on both sides and a steep wall/roof at the top.
