Route Description

Brenda from Kansas (BFK) is a new three-bolt direct start to Obscurity Risk on the west face of the Overlook. Begin on a flat, smooth hold at chest height and continue through a series of powerful moves on crimps and sidepulls to a funky mantle to gain the ledge. The hardest moves are just below the first bolt, but the difficulty is continuous throughout the steep overhang. After the ledge, join up with Obscurity Risk and climb to the chain anchors on the slab. This was named after a woman crossing the road at Boulder Falls.


Originally, bolts, pins, fixed wires, RPs, TCUs, and a #2 Mastercam.

Now it is all bolts and maybe crashpads.
