Rated three stars in the DCA, this is an excellent moderate with a great panoramic view of the valley.

There are two basic variations to start Razor Worm. The easy way is starting at a huge flake, work up the right side of the flake, then follow a crack system up the face. A more exciting alternative is left of the big flake (and a tree); boulder up on good holds and continue up through a chimney section and on to the crack system. A bulge toward the top is the crux; use either of two vertical cracks about three feet apart, or barrel-hug both. After surmounting the bulge, continue up on easier ground to anchors at the top of the cliff.


Starts about 10' left of Cake Walk.


Standard T-Wall rack -- small to medium gear. Rap from ring anchors at the top (new since a fire destroyed rap trees). A 60-meter rope may be just long enough. A single BD #3 cam is useful for the crux about 85% of the way up the route.
