Fun plate climbing leads up to a very large ledge. Rest and get ready for the steep exciting finish. Pull around the arete and follow great holds to the top!


From the approach trail head left until you see an exposed arete high on the cliff on the right.


8 bolts to Chains

Very exciting move coming around the arete. Jul 7, 2008
Not sure why this one got downgraded to 10c on here, I have always heard it called a 10d. For me the crux was clipping the bolt after the rest. The hold is pretty good but it is still pumpy and the exposure is exciting! Blow the clip and your taking a big ride! Oct 21, 2009

Classic mid 5.10 sport route. The big rest 2/3 the way up keeps the grade at mid 5.10. Climb this route regardless of grade. Oct 5, 2010

@ ziggy- probably because fire and brimstone is definitely harder and feels about .10d. I thought it was probably .10b, but that clip is tough and pretty damn exposed, so .10c js probably a fairer grade.

Either way, not for the beginning .10 leader! Oct 15, 2010

Thrilling Climb!! Good hands free rest 2/3 of the way up allows the last section to send pretty easily. Clipping the bolt coming out onto the arete can be done in a mild manner on good holds but is exposed nonetheless. Personally I found clipping the anchors to be the real scare!! Awesome climb all the way through! Dec 5, 2011
A hold has broken on this and it is now .10d. Still an awesome climb though! Apr 1, 2013

Superb moderate jug haul, more fun for the exit and reentry via alcove.

FYI the full name of the route is "Breakfast Burrito: The Cuervo Gold . . ."

Don't forget to soak it all in at the 'Overview Effect' jug. Jun 10, 2013

you can manufacture a 10a outta this and go for the full pucker factor by simply skipping the crux clip... Sep 15, 2013

Crux clip isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Throw some heels, be composed and get on it. Mar 22, 2015

imo the anchors are harder than the crux clip (but the crux clip is scarier). Both have big fall potential. A spicy burrito! May 29, 2017
