Leading Barbie at Tinker Toys.


Second bolt line from the south (right) end of the wall. 10 feet from the broken dihedral crack.

The start for this route is slightly easier than K'Nex as there are a couple of options for edges or cracks. Once on the ledge in the middle of the route you can dyno for a huge jug flake and then mantle onto a smaller ledge to gain the anchors.

May be done as a top rope by scrambling up ledges to the south.


Five bolts to double chain anchor.

And when this says 5 bolts to 2 chain anchors, doesn't it really mean 3 bolts? I certainly didn't see five, and I feel like a have a rudimentary understanding of how arithmetic works. Maybe there used to be 5?

Thought it was a little easier than Knex to the right. Fun Dyno with a great camper hold.

I agree that it is a tad easier than K-nex to the right, but I thought that it was way more fun. It has a couple fun moves, and i was never really searching for holds.

It was fun but I didn't like having so much rope out. It felt like you'd hit the ground at both clips 2 and 3. I liked the Dyno though.
