All You Can Eat is 20' left of Blue Mascara. The route is gently overhanging up to, and through the crux. Four bolts protect the lower moves and crux, a #9 stopper protects the last 20'. A little pumpy, lots of fun!


Four bolts, take a #9 stopper to protect upper moves. Two-bolt rappel/belay anchor on top.


Hey Brent! It is allways about cheese isn't it? No it pertains to a rather bad buffet dining experience we had at the Hill City Cafe the evening before. We think it made the grade of the climb harder. By the way - thanks for the drive to Spearfish Brent. I owe you those CD I keep saying I am going to send your way- BURT Jul 27, 2003
I just did this route "all you can eat" and I must say that the climb was good, but I am still hungry. I thought 5.10c was a fine grade for the climb. Whoever put this route up must like cheap food and bolts, whats up with button heads?They could have just saved a bunch of money and use some nuts and cams down low. After all they call for nuts on the same type of terrain up high.I thought the clipping stances were well thought out and the anchor in good shape. Overall a well produced product.Way to open your eyes, see something and do it. Yo Brent did you look at this line in 75 or 76?Just kidding broLove Curt Feb 20, 2004

If after traversing ffrom the large hueco onto the crystals/knobs, you use the left arete, what's the grade? I thought 10a if using the arete. 10c if going straight up. Any thoughts? Jul 15, 2008
Any long time locals climb this lately? We were not able to finish the route straight up after numerous attempts; had to go around the arete (easy moves). I'm curious if a key hold has broken off the crux, as the three quartz ledges weren't positive enough to get higher feet. The entire climb felt 5.9ish except for the short section between bolts 3&4, which we were unable to finish. I'm an aspiring 12 climber, so I figure something must have broken off. For reference, did nearby "Mr. Critical" (11b) yesterday and thought it was 11c/d, and also did Blue Mascara (also 10c) just to the right and thought it was 10d, so I respect that the grades here are a little stiff, but It's been more than 3 years since I found a 10anything I couldn't finish. Anyone want to comment on whether something broke off?

I climbed this route about a year later than you in august of 2016, I am also about a 12 climber, although I have not done mr. crtical I have done static cling (5.10b/c) and blue mascara (10c) in that immediate area, I did fall once between between bolts 3&4, but I think I was able to find a small under cling or something to pull myself up high enough to clip the 4th bolt (I am rather tall so that may be an advantage). After that I don't remember much because it was all adrenaline, I didn't bring the #9 stopper to protect the last bit, so it was quite run out for such a small climb, I beleive I went out left to the arete. I hope this helps. May 22, 2017
