Description

This route is found on the Baby Steps Face. This is directly behind Finley Crack and is actually the other half of that rock. This is the right of two bolted routes. A great route for beginning leaders.

Protection

4 bolts to a double ring anchor

I am giving this route 2 stars with a caveat. It is a route for children. Kids will have a blast on this face. Mine did. Thank you Kayla and family for such a fun place to take my daughter. Dec 22, 2005

5.2 is closer to right! A great FIRST LEAD for the kids... Sep 28, 2006
This is a great area for kids learning to lead, indeed. However, despite this route's name, this is not a great area for babies. The difficult approach and lack of safe, flat ground around the base made it unsuitable for our 15-month-old to hang out with the whole family. Send the toddlers on a nearby hike with a parent while you check this face out.

The easiest approach is the gully to the right of Iceberg Boulder. Take a left at the top of the boulder and squeeze through a corridor between the rocks. Jun 14, 2009

It may be a fine training ground for the wee ones, but this isn't technical rock climbing (5th class). I can't see how anyone with experience in the area would list this as a 5.5 at Jtree. I walked up it in tennis shoes without using my hands. Dec 13, 2009

Does anyone know the history of this route and Girl Power? The top anchors look like aging, sketchy button-heads, yet the routes are listed as having FAs done in 2004. Are the lead bolts on the face modern hardware? Nov 8, 2013
