This is the leftmost bolted route on the Lower Muffin. To reach this climb from the main path, simply walk to The Muffins, and it will be the leftmost climb of the three bolted routes on the Lower Muffin.

This route involves a 5.10 "power" move, as the route has solid grips all the way up, it's just a matter of pulling your body along the way.

The top is a little mossy, but the important grips were (when we climbed it) uncovered.


2 draws to a 2 bolt top anchor. Access to set up a toprope is accomplished by walking around the right side of the Lower Muffin to the backside, and then climbing a short distance to the anchors on top.

Variations for the start: In the chimney (not using the chimney, of course) or on the face left of the first bolt, then coming around the arete right at the first bolt. The latter features some fun balancy moves.
