Description

Look for a pair of bolted lines on the left side of a chimney on the Blazing Fin. Makin Muffins is the right hand line. Stick to the right and follow the bolts to the chains. Fun route with interesting moves.

Protection

bolts (approx 7 or 8) and chain anchors.

I think this is a pretty great little route. This would be a good way to warm your head up for climbing in Cochise or Joshua tree - tricky, technical low-angle moves with a few spicy sections (up to the first bolt and near the top). If you start to the left of the initial bulge, standing on a rock, the mantle moves to the first bolt are 5.7PG (don't fall, it would suck). Aug 21, 2016

If you are a 5.7 climber you will probably be a bit freaked out by the two run outs on this route. The obvious, and most dangerous one, is at the bottom before your first bolt. The second (that I remember) is up top getting to the anchors. Both are on easy ground, but not necessarily something a 5.7 leader would want to encounter... May 5, 2014

I agree with David - high first bolt and iffy moves just below and above it. Freaked me out a bit. Jan 23, 2011
The first bolt is a good 20 feet up. While the climb is only 5.7, if you don't make it to the first bolt you're looking at a pretty nasty ground fall and tumble down the mountain. While I'm not an advocate of overbolting, it doesn't make much sense to put up a 5.7 sport route that you have to solo the first 20 feet of. Maybe I should have brought a stick clip, but a bolt at 10-15 feet would make more sense to me. May 13, 2009

I think this route is actually pretty fun. Great moderate slab climbing. The first bolt is on very solid terrain i would say. Mar 2, 2008

I wouldn't call it 5.8, but this is at the upper end of 5.7. It's a long way to the first bolt and a long way down Willow Canyon if you roll off the cliff. Jun 5, 2006
