Crux section of B-Gizzle. Photo: Steve Cox


This is one of the first routes you'll encounter as you walk into the gully. It's the obvious left facing corner with a thin crack. It's a bit on the short side compared to most of the other routes on Mustache Wall, but the moves are fun and it's worth doing. The crux is the first few feet of the lieback. The fingers are pretty good but there's no footholds to speak of.


The FAR left end of Mustache Wall, you'll walk right past it as you follow the trail into the canyon.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

Solid 10c... some of those clips are hard to make off the lieback. Thin thin fingers and slick feet.

Sandbag. more like 10d/11a and be prepared to get your leg caught behind the rope. Everybody does! Great route just a little burly for 10c.

Bolts on the lie-back were recently moved making the clips more reasonable and the likelihood of getting your leg behind the rope less. Hopefully better now.

Just did this for the first time today. Can't speak to where the old bolts were but the clips from the new location all seemed pretty reasonable. Still got the rope behind my leg a few times but that's probably just me being dumb.

Don't hesitate to try what I like to call the "B-Gizzle-Bomb." Continue up past the B-Gizzle anchor leading into the upper portion of the classic route, "Fire Bomb." A bolted 5.11 crux sequence is encountered above the B-Gizzle anchor and then onto moderate crack climbing to the anchor. Several more QD's and a singles rack of cams to #3 Camalot should do ya. 70 METER ROPE TO LOWER OFF.

Yah, the Gizz Bomb, very nice! Stout clip at the crux, 11c for me compared to the other 11bs on the wall. A med stopper or 2 would have been nice.
