Baby Robbins is located on the south face of JAWS, directly opposite of Jaws. Thin hands off the deck determines the grade of this climb.


Boulder problem, Standard Rack. Gear Anchor.

That's probably because of a cat named C. Miller who rated it 3rd class and hence changed the overall rating. Feb 16, 2010

Ok so as far as ratings go this is a weird one for me... Its harder than hamburger, way easier than robbins... but I have to ring lock the whole way up it, so kinda technical crack technique... Sep 13, 2012

There's no reason to rope up for this climb, even without a pad. The crux comes early, then it widens into perfect hands and low angle, and the landing is clean. You can scoot down to an easy walk-off on the right. Apr 14, 2013
Good test for those learning to jam. Dec 24, 2017

A perfect beginning-level boulder problem..flat landing, just high enough and hard enough to keep your interest with a little thrill at the top, and not really "5.9" ...if this was on lead it was be at least 5.10a. Just super aesthetic and when you discover it you can't get your shoes on fast enough.

Of course this was named after Royal Robbins who took a trip down here and got led around by some locals, but I can't imagine it wasn't on everyone's circuit way before that. Jun 3, 2018
