This is directly to the right of Beavis on the west face. Follow the bolts using great jugs for hands and feet. Good route for a warm-up and a good beginner lead.


6 bolts, two cold shuts and a set of cold shuts with chains form an anchor shared with Beavis.

In 2008, this area is closed between February 1 and August 31 - for nesting Peregrine Falcons and Mexican Spotted Owls.

This climb is on the south face, not the west face as stated in the route description. It is between Beavis to the left, and Pizz Whiz to it's right.

More fun than Beavis. Crux is between the 5th bolt and the chains (5th through 6th and just a bit above the 6th to be clear); however the crux is over once you are able to grab the nicely sized jugs. Use the diagonal crack for feet and hands to get through the crux. Very different route compared to all the others at Barnum - i.e. - more slabby, larger holders, greater use of large cracks.
