Description

Classic crack climbing at T-Wall, Cake Walk is another popular three-star route.

Starts in a nice left-facing corner. Move up to a small roof, then continue up a beautiful hand/finger crack to the top.

Location

Starts about 10' right of Razor Worm.

Protection

Small to medium gear. Newly-installed ring anchors at the top alleviate the former hazards of coming up short on rap from the tree at the top of Razor Worm.

I once climbed this and found a little rattlesnake about halfway up! Nov 25, 2006

This was the last route we climbed on my first day at the T-Wall. It is one of the best pitches I've ever done! Dec 12, 2006

60m barely gets you down, depending on manufacturer. Recently saw a girl deck when her partner let the rope slip through the belay plate.

Great climb, kind of a "2 move wonder". Mar 12, 2007

This climb is classic. Sustained, beautiful climbing. Get a rest before you hop on this cause it's a long way to a rest spot. The finger crack crux is awesome Jun 22, 2010

Wonderful line on perfect sandstone! Small blue BD protects the crux. Have seen snakes on the small ledges between this route and Razor Worm. Avoid the line and awkward start of Golden Locks and jump on this SE classic! Feb 29, 2012

Just don't leave any valuables in your car. While climbing there high up on the rock we heard a faint sound in the distance only to discover our windows had been broken out, tires slashed, and everything stolen out of our vehicle. Great climbing - Bad juju ! Jan 12, 2014

It is imperative that you do this climb. Jams all day with a couple of good rest spots. A+ route. Sep 13, 2015

A beautiful, classic line - I'd call it 5.9+. Mar 24, 2016

One of the best pitches you can imagine. Perfect rock climbing! It's pretty stout for the grade, because where you come out of the lower dihedral onto the finger cracks the feet are terrible! Amazing sequence!! Nov 23, 2018
