Brooke atop the comical protrusion
Fun sport route up one of the longer routes on Cattle Call Wall. Typical of most climbs at Las Conchas the crux is at the bottom as most walls are undercut and finding good feet is difficult. Getting past initial bulge is crux.
Listed as route #3 on route topo photo for Las Conchas Cattle Call Wall.
6 bolts to chains.

Very nice route. Direct start (straight through the bulge) is definitely the most difficult. Easier alternatives lie to each side. I'd rate the moves for the direct start as 5.10, but they're also height-dependent; after that it's 5.8/5.9. Well protected; certainly one of the best routes on Cattle Call Wall.

This climb is so funny.
I think it should be renamed: "The Hilarity of Slime"
I mean, it's so funny when you're on top of that thing...and then every hold is so greasy from overuse. My partner and I were cracking up on this guy.

There is an alternate 2-bolt variation start just to the right of the normal start of this climb that bypasses the first crux (making the route easier: 5.8?).
There is also a single bolt above the 2-bolt anchor, which one could use to set a TR or to drop down the few feet to the anchor to set a TR.
