The Barr got its name because our good friend Pat Barr donated 50 Fixe hangers to area development. This wall is amazing, slabby, well-featured limestone that faces west.

Getting There 

At the top of the main access trail/gully, turn right toward south tower. Follow the trail at the base of the south tower, heading left around the corner. Follow this trail just past the first major break in the wall. Routes start in the alcove.

There is another route between Barrcrawl and Barrfly. It is similar in character, length, and level of difficulty to Barrfly. It would be nice if it could be posted.

The grades on the routes on the left side of the area, up to and including Same Face, Different Name AKA Sidebarr are markedly soft. On the right side, they are not.

The comments about the ratings are helpful but to truly be helpful I urge registered users of MP to give their input on the ratings of a route on the route's page. MP now displays the "consensus" grade (versus the "original grade") as the default grade for a route on the route page. The more suggested ratings, the more accurate the consensus grade.
Having done a fair bit of route development myself, it's often quite difficult to decide on a route's grade after you've spent hours on it touching/cleaning/brushing every hold and figuring out beta. Consensus grades help with this so thanks for adding your input.
