P1. This climb starts on top of a boulder with a fairly tough move right off the bat. Face climb to a hand crack, and belay at a tree.

P2. Step left and crack climb up to another tree, then to a corner, and belay at a horizontal dike.

P3. This god pitch climbs up a large crack and around corners to a belay left of a small roof.

P4. Climb to right facing corner at the left end of a long roof, pull over the roof, and climb run out, easy slab to the top.


It is just to the North of The Greatest Route at Greyrock.

Per Aaron Martinuzzi: location beta - this route starts on top of a boulder just right of a large, left-facing dihedral about 50 feet east (climber's right) of Greatest Route.


Standard rack.

5.7+. The only good move on the whole route was the move getting into the crack off of the boulder. Old school for sure. I thought i was on the wrong route, but I kept climbing and had some fun. Aug 15, 2008
Location beta - this route starts on top of a boulder just right of a large, left-facing dihedral about 50 feet east (climber's right) of Greatest Route. I moved off the top of the boulder into a nice handcrack right away. This first move was probably the most 5.7 of the entire route, as Matt suggests, but the first two pitches offer some really fun handcracks (though interrupted by the occasional shrub). Not to be missed if you're headed out to Greyrock.

When I climbed it today the middle of the third pitch corner had some bird shit and feathers floating around. A little unpleasant. also, it rained last night (2-May) and though much of the other climbing on Greyrock was dry, this corner and the adjacent wide crack were soaked. May 3, 2009

At the third pitch, move right for some 5.8 crack and slab. This was the hardest pitch for our team of four. Navigate from crack to crack to find yourself on a nice ledge with a chock slone. Aug 10, 2009

Barfy's is a fun climb and well worth doing.
Scott, the slab right of the dirty corner is known as Judy's Jaunt (5.7), and yes, it's a much better finish to Barfy's - making for a 3 star route. Mar 6, 2011

Brought some friends up this route last Sunday. Couldn't believe it was warm enough to climb in a t-shirt in February! The first pitch is probably the most fun with the first move and some easy hand jams. Pitch 3 was definitely the most interesting, connecting short cracks and putting the puzzle together. All in all a good time. Feb 9, 2015
