The upper part of the route is quite sustained for the grade but extremely well chalked holds help make quick decisions.  Hunter S on the route, May 2010.

An excellent climb for grade. Popular. Lots of chalk. Pumpy.

One of my favorites at El Rito. Great moves, long, and sustained with one good rest in the middle. Watch out for some loose rock to the left of the anchors.

Excellent climb. Fun moves. One of my favorites here so far.

The cobble up top to the left of the anchors is loose(!). This is the hold I use for clipping, and from the amount of chalk on it, seems like everybody else does, too. I pulled hard on it and couldn't get it to pry loose, but if you shake it, it definitely rattles. I drew an "X" on it with chalk, but this will wash off in the next rain/snow storm. Beware!

Wait a minute....

So the hold was moving and making noise and you still decided to clip the chains from it? Hmmmmm.....

I did the same thing as Dave, though it wasn't making noise. If you dead hang it the rock won't give, and it is by far the best clipping hold.

This route is a good candidate for retrobolting.

Dave, you will be glad to know the cobble is still up there scarring the shit out of climbers. Why do you think it's named cobble wobble?
