Description Suggest change

Many find this climb to feel more 5.10ish but respect must go to Henry Barber and others for not bitching about grades and leading it with just nuts.

This beautiful crack ranges from fingers to wide hands and is stellar from top to bottom. The crux comes at about the 1/3 mark and involves thin fingers and/or long reaches to good locks. Many folks find the route to be a pumpy one If you are pumped at the top, the last moves of the route will feel a bit cruxy too.

Location Suggest change

This is the farthest left perfect crack climb at the Barber Wall.

Protection Suggest change

Lots of nuts (hence the name) and cams for the new-schoolers.

Actually, the new-schoolers comment is just for history. Do bring cams too.

Make sure to bring a #3 or #3.5 if its your first time on the route.
