A five bolt sport route on far right side of Cattle Call Wall. Feels awkward but climbs alright.


Far right side of Cattle Call Wall. Listed as route #8 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall.


5 bolts to fixe super shuts. Quality hardware is appreciated.

Good route. Perhaps it's just the way I'm doing it, but I think the bottom section is 5.9. Easier above.

This climb is incorrectly marked as 'Moon Over Belen' in both current guides.

My guess is that the original 'Moon Over Belen' climb is a chossy trad climb somewhere on the right side of Cattle Call Wall, probably up the left-slanting bushy crack just left of this route. The confusion probably resulted from the original Las Conchas guide having no photos or sketches of Cattle Call wall.

The proper name for the climb was provided by the FA (SB).

It looks awkward and climbs awkward. 5.8 at best. The shorter climb (4 bolts to anchor)just to the left of it, before Cow Pies for Breakfast, is a much better route.
