Carlo Rivas on Cobble Climb, Wheeler Gorge. On TR.

Description 

Conglomerate climbing. Fun, fairly easy cruising on rounded cobbles. However, falling before clipping the second bolt might be a bad thing.

Cobble Climb is found on the second corner of the creek after the first bridge (starting from the parking northeast on Hwy 33). It is the left-most line on the conglomerate.


Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors.

Fun climb. Smaller holds than the 5.9 to its right.

Can be "interesting" testing out which cobbles you think are cemented into the wall the best. The quartzite cobbles can be super slick so don't go up with wet shoes. Definitely a fun time though. @ryan this is not granite.
