Fun climb that targets the namesake hole up high.

This is the Ro Shampo of Barn Bluff. 5.12a in the guidebook. Originally listed here as 5.11d, it may have become harder over the years like most popular Red Wing routes (see comments below).

It looks like most recent redpointers have given it 5.12a, so I have changed it to reflect that (January 09).

Find the big hole on the cliff wall on the very left-most little bolted area, follow the line of bolts directly below. If I remember right this line shares the anchors with the climb just to the left, Suicide Squeeze. Anybody feel free to correct me if this is wrong, it's been a few years.


Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.
