DescriptionBirthday Party is a nice mixed face and crack line that will challenge the 5.7 leader nicely. While the route had been climbed literally hundreds of times without incident prior to 1994, two bolts were added to the starting moves before Pinnacle Peak Park opened to protect modern gym climbers.
Start in a shallow right-facing corner at the end of the wall. Some thin face moves lead up past the two low bolts to better holds. Continue up, placing nuts to reach the obvious roof crack above. Jam the overhanging roof crack to easier vertical ground and continue to the top. Belay is set by downclimbing off the back and using cracks in the ledge behind.
