Description

Trad route to the left of B.F. Bugs. Varying width crack starts wide then tapers. Plenty of stemming, layback, and face holds to work with. Anchors added above roof/below tree in summer 2017 for easier lowering. Use your own gear at anchors if top roping. Crack gobbles up dirt and debris from above, but won't prevent you from reaching the top! As typical at Barn Bluff, more traffic would greatly improve the route.

Note that volunteers are doing this work, and it can take time and not always be perfect...

Thanks again!

The Coffee Table hanging death trap broke off yesterday, making for a really great route now. No real fear of death! Still no anchors that I could find though. Sep 27, 2010

Installed a pair of shuts under the tree at the top of this route and cleaned some of the loose rock out of the crack system. This will never be an entirely clean route (par for the course at Barn Bluff), but it has been improved and you can now lower off without using the muddy tree at the top. Jul 10, 2017
