This may be blasphemy, but I actually like this line better than Breakfast Burito.
benny said on August 20th, 2003
There are 10 bolts now.
jim said on September 5th, 2003
Benny is right. Did this one the other day and it now has 10 bolts.

Isn't this route located just left of breakfast burrito?
automated said on July 4th, 2005
route kinda sux.
Anonymous said on July 29th, 2006
automated--are you kidding??? this thing is WAY better than breakfast, i think it's one of the best .10's in the red.
allah said on July 30th, 2006
you would think it is one of the best 10's in the gorge
merrick said on October 23rd, 2006
this is definately as classic as breakfast burrito! techy and interesting to pumpy and exposed. super rad!
heavyc said on August 8th, 2007
my favorite 10 in the Red and certainly better than breakfast burrito
der uber said on August 26th, 2007
Route felt stout for grade, at least when hanging draws. Exciting.

Did this and many other routes at drive-by last week and it is WAAAAAAAAAAY better than breakfast burrito. cool layback moves to arete to jugs to arete to jugs to slab? cmon.
Meadows said on October 29th, 2007
I avoided this route for years because I was told how bad it was, although it looked good. This is a very worthwhile route - loved it.
Anonymous said on October 31st, 2007
this thing is so, so, so much better than bb. that route is almost all one kind of feature, this thing is a grab bag of amazingness. definitely one of the best 10's in the red.

this route kicks breakfast burrito hard in the ass

Best for the Grade at the Red!
pkananen said on May 3rd, 2009
Best 10 sport route in the Red I've done so far.
gripster said on October 21st, 2009
This is one of the best of the grade in the RRG, enjoy it!

Felt like I could climb the bottom half of this thing 500 different ways and all of them would be fun! I'm gonna have to do the BB bash too... this line is awesome.
Cromper said on November 10th, 2010
Probably my favorite 10d I have climbed so far at the Red, way better than breakfast burrito in my opinion. Get on this!
dustonian said on July 19th, 2011
Jingus anchor at present. Bring about 4-6" of chain, 2 quicklinks + maybe a spare biner, or else plan to clean on rappel.
swj said on November 6th, 2011
fwiw, I liked this AND breakfast burrito. jeesh people.
Anonymous said on April 13th, 2012
4-9-2012; we both felt this a higher quality route than BB, and deserved of its rating; why? not the jug haul BB is, with many different moves, crimps included, and some puzzle solving to keep your mind occupied. To us, our favorite route at Drive By(we're NOT 5.12 climbers)
nik said on May 8th, 2012
one of my favorite routes i've done so far at the red. if you like a certain style or type of hold you'll probably find it on this route. and, you get a sit-down, saddle rest! maybe a little tough for the grade?

Make sure your belayer is paying attention, I took a 50 ft. ground fall on this route in October.
Anonymous said on December 16th, 2014
Maybe make sure your belayer isn't an idiot.
kenellis said on December 17th, 2014
That's totally on your belayer and nothing to do with this route. You shoulda been well off the ground falling from 50 ft, I'm assuming from the crux.

Horatio Felacio said on February 20th, 2016
how the hell does this get 5 stars!? solid rock, but awkward and horribly bolted.
Chiyram said on April 18th, 2016
I am also confused on how this gets 5 stars. Didn't care for it. Definitely a unique route, but that's about it.
Anonymous said on May 9th, 2017
If you don't like this route you probably don't like climbing. One of the best 10s anywhere. And yes, it is very unique. I didn't realize the saddle was a full on sit-down rest. It's doable without it, you just need to take your time.
monty4355 said on May 9th, 2017
That Chiyram guy has no clue. Total gumby. You should have seen him trying to clean a route at the Solarium last weekend.
Chiyram said on May 9th, 2017
Pretty sure you were the other monkey in that Circus performance. lol

What’s the point of the the first two draws when your gonna deck going for the 3rd?
Anonymous said on September 27th, 2020
For such a well traveled route, the bolting is poor.
