Description

This is the right route on the wall. It joins the left route near the top. Powerful moves right off the deck deposit you to the right a bit. A brilliant, pinchy crux leads you right into the crux of Hungry Wolf (the left route 12d/13a). Keep it together to the anchors. It's pumpy all the way.

7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Somehow this one got away til recently. This has to be one of the best routes in the canyon. It is benchmark in both its grade and quality. Flippin' awesome! Oct 23, 2016

The crux move to the right-hand pinch is a stopper for me. No giveaway. Solid 8a. Sep 14, 2014

Today I accidentally broke the start right-hand undercling hold - it exploded as I was pulling on it. My partner and I feared only heinous alternatives, but we found a better, and not harder, sequence. Sep 22, 2012

Right on, Jay. Best 5.13 in the canyon and possibly in the Front Range. Love, NOT like, this route! Mar 11, 2012

Man what an awesome route! I'm surprised this thing doesn't see more traffic, its a 4-star classic anywhere! Great climbing, fun position and there's never gonna be a line for this one. It's definitely worth heading up the hill to try this beast. Mar 10, 2012

Wiled,

I agree, climbing 5.13 does make it so that 5.2 should be easy...however, my concern was with someone who was heading up to belay and didn't climb 5.13 or wasn't too psyched on the chossy solo up there.

The route's great...and when I was up there the warm up wasn't in yet. knowing there is a rap ring up there makes it easier. I guess my beef was the lone belay bolt for SW. MM has 2 though you say?

Guess if you had a scared partner belaying them up is an option also. Apr 5, 2010

Darren - we didn't have a whole lot of time up there yesterday, so warmed up bolt to bolt on Stuffed Wolf. Going back up today, gonna give your warm up a run. I'll let you know how it goes. Mar 22, 2010

Nice, Jaime! Did you try the warm-up while you were up there? What did you think? Mar 22, 2010

What an amazing route! Difficult from start to finish, and literally right from the first move. This is going to be a fight to send this thing. Brilliant moves and brilliant positioning. Kudos to those that have linked this rig. Feels hard in the grade. Mar 21, 2010

Blake: one option is to rap off the ledge from the first bolt (has fixed draw 99% of the time) or if you wish, you can now rap 60 feet off the ledge from the belay anchor of the warm-up, Mouse Meat (one of the belay bolts has a rap-hanger), left of Stuffed Wolf and Hungry Wolf.

I personally think a fixed line you propose is not necessary. If one can climb 5.13, they should have no trouble soloing and down-soloing the 5.2 approach. May be eyesore issues, too. For example when I first inspected what is now Mouse Meat, a few years ago I left a fixed line that someone snaked within a month. That was the first time that has happened to me, and frankly I was surprised that someone took it considering the effort involved. Still scratchin' my head why it was taken. Feb 8, 2010

Went up to this route yesterday...and I have a few questions:

1. Would anyone be opposed to my putting in another belay anchor bolt? This would make getting off the ledge really easy as you could rap off and not have to down climb that chossy 5.whateveritis.

2. Is there any need for a fixed line to get up there? I was thinking that just some old rope fixed onto this belay anchor (if we are ok with another bolt) could necessitate a much safer approach up as if you fall or something breaks, you're essentially in the hospital. You could just Grigri in and self belay up...problem solved.

What do you guys think? Make getting to this route a bit safer with 2 easy fixes? Jan 11, 2010

I would agree. This is probably one of the best routes I've tried anywhere. Feb 5, 2008
Stuffed Wolf is simply stellar. There is some loose stone on the route, likely due to the overall lack of traffic, but the moves are technical, difficult and unrelenting. Resting on this one is quite a challenge. Perhaps one of my favorite lines in CCC. Oct 26, 2002
