Description

A lightbulb gave the Easy Bake Oven its power but it's not power, but technique (and a touch of faith), that will get you to the top of this line.
Start as for Babies in the House but clip bolts on the blunt arĂȘte to the right. After the third bolt leave the security of the corner with a tricky, blind reach to the arĂȘte. Engaging climbing leads up to gigantic holds through the roof and steep finish.

Location

Just right of Babies in the House leaving from the same belay platform

Protection

7 bolts to chains with biners.

I agree with Noah...I am 6'3" and there are definitely moves in the middle that a 10b rating would be a bit kind, I think 10c is a better fit Nov 14, 2015

If you know the moves at the crux they go pretty smooth but for an onsight I think 10c will give a better idea what you are in for. Apr 15, 2014
