Climb the steep tan face below the narrow pillar utilizing a variety of pockets and positive features. Continue up the face of the pillar to its top. Mantle onto the pillar and climb the overhanging headwall above on side-pulls and positive edges to the anchor.

3 out of 5 stars Tougher than 10a

Thought this was tougher than a 10a. Beginning isnt too bad but the last 2-3 bolts is pretty steep climbing over the budging pillar top. Tougher than any of the other 10a's in this area.

4 out of 5 stars Cleared For Take Off

Steeper than it looks, "The Barkley" will hold your attention to the very end. Excellent protection, a great variety of holds and an exciting finish. Well worth the hike up to The Upper Tier to do along with the other new moderates in this often overlooked area.
